NECK ISSUES – 3 FUNDAMENTAL APPROACHES
Unfortunately we sit almost all day long, looking into screens, tablets and phones. This has a catastrophic effect on our necks. Especially children in early age are in danger of developing weak necks. One can say that there are 3 immediate cures for a forward neck posture:
1) Chest openers: any chest openers will do. Here: supported fish pose
2) Mobility to the spine through twisting.
The neck is not an isolated part of the body. We need to bring flexibility to the entire spine. Twists are great for this purpose! Here: twist on chair
3) Mild traction to the neck: this is a headstand variation. Its called sirsasana in ropes with baddha konasana legs. We lift the trapezius muscles to the sides of the neck up. The elbows move toward each other. The neck stays in its natural curve. This is so wonderful for neck issues. However you need to do this together with an experienced teacher!
