Nek stretch the yoga way

Een wat intensievere nek stretch waarbij ook de borst en schouders betrokken zijn

Begin sitting on the heels

Lean back and place your hand palms flat on the floor about 20 centimer behind you so your fingertips are pointing away.

Press your hands firmly into the ground to lift the chest high, arching your back and pushing your hips into your heels.

To increase the stretch, lower your head behind you, stretching through your throat and the front of your chest even more.

Stay for 30 seconds, then lift your head and torso up.

Seated Heart Opener

Stretch through the front of your neck, chest, and shoulders

Begin lying flat on your back with your arms along the sides of your body, with your palms facing down.
Bend your knees and place your feet flat on the floor. Walk your heels close to your butt, keeping them hip-width apart.
Feet are parallel.
Lift your hips off the floor when your palms and feet are pressed  firmly into the ground.
Stay here, or clasp your hands together extending your arms a bit more.
Rock your weight from side to side to bring the shoulder blades closer together.
Stay here for 30 seconds, continuing to lift the hips high.
To release this stretch, gently lower your butt back to the ground. Then stretch through your lower back by hugging your knees into your chest.

A pose that allows you to control how much you stretch the back of your neck by how high the hips are lifted.
