Neck Exercise Eye Release

Yoga In 60 Seconds ~ Neck Exercise Eye Release


Super Gentle Movement To Free Your Neck

 Student Requested Video for Gaye 🙂

This neck exercise is super gentle, I promise.  Maximum neck release with minimal effort…that sounds good to me!   By using the eyes, we can trick the proprioceptive system into increasing the resting length of some of the neck and shoulder muscles in order to open a bit of extra range.

If you’ve had a sore neck before, you might not relish the thought of stretching it out.  After all, it can be a fine line between improving things and irritating an already inflamed area.  What would be worse is doing nothing at all as ultimately this will cause muscles to stiffen further from disuse.  The key is to take a paced approach and only do small, gentle movements that are unlikely to provoke pain.   It’s always a good idea to check with your health practitioner as to what is most appropriate for you. 

This neck release is very quick, easy, and takes hardly any effort at all.  If your neck and upper back tend to be an area that holds onto tension, then you will LOVE this easy move.  Best done seated either on a chair or on the floor.  Save this link and do it in front of your screen from time to time.  You’ll be amazed at how easy and effective it is.   Give it a go right now if you are sitting comfortably.
