3 YOGA EXERCISES TO HELP YOU GET RID OF NECK PAIN
So, are you ready to alleviate your neck pain?
Here are three yoga poses that can help you manage and get rid off that neck pain:
1. Child’s pose
This movement stretches and relaxes your spine, neck, glutes and hamstrings, and helps to release tension in your lower back and neck.
Step1: Sit on your shin bones with your knees together, your big toes touching, and your heels splayed out to the side.
Step 2: Fold forward at your hips and walk your hands out in front of you, then sink your hips back down toward your feet.
Step 3: Gently place your forehead on the floor or turn your head to one side. Keep your arms extended or rest them along your body.
Step 4: Stay in this pose for up to 5 minutes while continuing to breathe deeply.
This exercise stretches and massages your spine, relieves tension in your torso, shoulders, and neck, while promoting blood circulation.
Step 1: Place your hands and knees on the ground imitating a cat.
Step 2: Inhale to look up, dropping your abdomen down toward the ground as you extend your spine.
Step 3: Exhale and arch your spine toward the ceiling and tuck your chin into your chest.
Step 4: Continue this movement for at least 1 minute.
3. Savasana – Corpse Pose
Since reducing stress and stiffness from the neck is our goal here, this penultimate pose that is performed at the end of one’s yoga session, helps meditate, alleviate body pain, relax, and reduce the stress level in our body.
Step 1: Lay on your back with your feet spread and palms facing up.
Step 2: Notice your breathing.
Step 3: Experience how your body is gradually getting relaxed, from your face to your fingers and toes.
Step 4: Stay in this pose for as long as you want.
So ladies, try these easy to perform yoga poses, and effectively manage your neck pain!
