Somatic Yin for Neck and Shoulder Pain
For Neck and Shoulder Pain
This practice really focuses on the sides of the neck. You know, those muscles that get so tender and tight? When the sternocleidomastoid get’s cranky, we can often feel sensitive in our shoulders and even the jaw. This is mostly somatic work to learn to feel sensations here without the drama. Though, you will get some gentle stretches as well.
Duration: 60 minutes
Props Needed: A blanket and a couple of blocks
Note: If you are someone who suffers from vertigo on occasion due to Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) I would recommend that you skip this practice as some of the movements may trigger your symptoms.
