Two Yoga Poses for Neck Pain!



With our daily lives getting busier by the minute, it can get quite strenous on our bodies. Being constantly on our feet can lead to stress and can cause the muscles and ligaments to shorten and tighten. It’s more than just a pain in the neck, but it can restrict movement in the neck also.

 

Here are two Yoga poses that help ease the pain (in the comfort of your own home): 

 

* Rabbit Pose: 

 

Directions: 

 

* Let’s begin by sitting on your heels. Exhale all the air out and grab your heels with back of the hands facing out, so thumbs outside, fingers inside 

* Engage your core and round down, placing the TOP of your head on the ground towards your knees so that your forehead is touching your knees

* Lift your hips high, rolling forward like a wheel until your elbows are locked, feeling this wonderful opening of the back of the heart.

* Inhale, pull on your heels with a firm grip of your hands and exhale, go deeper. Ahhh! 

* Stay here for at least 5 breaths, and slowly come up the same way you came in. Inhale, and roll up one vertebrae at a time, chin and head comes up last, releasing the hands.

 

 

* Bridge Pose: 

 

Directions: 

 

 * Lie on your back with your knees bent, feet flat, hip-width apart, heels directly below your knees. Leave your upper arms on the floor and bend your elbows alongside your ribs, pointing your forearms and fingers toward the ceiling. Turn your palms to face one another.

* Press your elbows and shoulder heads down into the floor, lift your chest, and bring your shoulder blades onto your upper back, wrapping your outer arms toward the floor. Keep your gaze straight up.

* Press into your feet and slowly send your knees forward, wrapping your outer hips toward the ceiling; then lift your buttocks away from the floor. Lengthen your tailbone toward the backs of your knees.

* Straighten your elbows and interlace your fingers underneath you, drawing your shoulder blades deeper into your upper back, keeping the tops of your shoulders in line with the base of your neck.

* Gently press the center of the back of your head into the floor. Broaden your collarbones and lift your chest, bringing your sternum toward your chin. Lightly reach your chin away from your chest, keeping space between the back of your neck and the floor. Simultaneously extend out through your knees as you lift your sternum. Take a few rounds of breath here.
