Finding Symmetry: Neck and Back Release

In this lesson you will lie on a blanket roller, gently exploring movements of the two sides of the body in a way that helps to improve your flexibility and symmetry while normalising muscle tone and releasing tension in your neck, back and all along your spine. I find it really helps me sense my central axis more clearly, improving my posture and alignment.

Pay attention to your breathing – allow it to be natural and easy
Reduce effort and keep the movements Small, Slow and Smooth
Don’t do anything that doesn’t feel right to you

First watch the video, imagining yourself doing the movements smoothly and effortlessly. Then lie down on a comfortable mat, thick carpet or folded blanket and do the movements with your eyes closed, listening to the instructions and paying close attention to the sensations in your body.

PLEASE REMEMBER: Listen to your body, move slowly and mindfully and never do anything that doesn’t feel comfortable or right to you. This is an intermediate level exercise.
