Yoga for the Neck, Shoulders & Upper Back | 6 Minute Bedtime Stretch

Yoga for the neck and shoulders

Free Yoga Shoulders, Free Your Mind with this Mini Yoga Class

 

Do you ever feel like you’re carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders? 

 

Like you have so much to take care of that your neck, shoulders, and upper back are literally trying to hold it all together by being constantly tense and tight?

 

I know exactly how that feels.

 

There are times when it seems like the responsibility pile will never stop growing, and the stress starts to manifest physically. The worry creeps into our bodies as tension, knotting up our muscles and making it impossible to think clearly or be in a good mood.

 

But here’s the thing: that tension will start to control us. And before we know it, we are operating as frantic, overwhelmed and disconnected, which completely drains us.

We deserve to take time for ourselves. In fact, it is absolutely necessary if we want to create the life we desire (and require).

 

So I want to remind you, my fellow warrior, that it’s okay to take a moment to breathe. 

 

It’s okay to give yourself permission to prioritize your own self-care even when it feels like there’s a million other things demanding your attention.

It’s okay to release that tension in your neck, shoulders, and upper back.

 

And one of the most powerful ways to release tension is through mind-body practices, like Yoga. 

 

Taking just a few minutes each day to stretch will make a world of difference. 

 

Not only does it help to relieve the physical tension, but it also allows you to show up in more powerful ways for yourself and for those we care about.

 

So today, I encourage you to take a break from the chaos, find a quiet space, and give yourself the gift of stretching. 

 

This quick Yoga stretch will help you unwind after a long day. Relieve tension and pain from the upper body, specifically the neck, shoulder and upper back, with these beginner-friendly exercises.

 

Cheers to taking your health into your own hands ✌🏻

    Hi I’m Jessi,

    For the past 10 years, I’ve been teaching yoga as a tool to help people reframe their relationship with movement. Yoga changed my life – it rescued me from cycles of chronic pain & anxiety attacks. And now, the mindfulness of yoga is a foundation of everything I teach.

    As a Holistic Fitness Trainer, my goal is to inspire people to love their bodies, so they can live pain-free, motivated & connected.

    A big part of what I do is: 200-hour Yoga Teacher Trainings, virtual workshops & yoga retreats with Stella Luna Yoga, click here to learn more.


    The list of my experience & training continues to grow. My coaching style focuses on strong foundations of body awareness & stabilization. I combine techniques from Yoga, Pilates, Strength Training, Massage Therapy & Mindfulness to craft well thought out & customized training plans to support all clients.
