Back+Neck

Back+Neck

These home practices emphasize strength, stretch or mobility in entire spine, including your cervical spine, your neck. While these home practices also include movements and postures that touch other areas of your body, they accentuate our ability to articulate through our spines and find reliable ways to strengthen the muscles that move our spines as well as stretch those muscles to release tension and holding patterns.

    This is a great practice to get ...
