We all spend a lot of time looking down, at the cell phone, at the computer, or we just got used to keeping our heads leaning forward. These postural habits can create tension and inflammation in the cervical area and in the upper part of the shoulders, since the muscles are in constant tension to support the head. We know that regular exercise compensates for these imbalances, strengthening and releasing muscles and joints.
Try these simple movements to release the cervical tension thought by our teacher Valentina Vecchi.
Our neck is a bridge between our mind and our heart, for this reason it stores all the emotions that pass through these two channels. Maintaining softness and elasticity in the neck allows a more fluid blood flow to our mind, giving clarity and calmness. It also helps us to relax the shoulders by promoting better mobility in the spine. Practice these movements slowly, bringing your breath into the perceived tension.
