This breathing is called belly breathing, used to bring awareness into the body and calm the mind.  Do this 3 to 5 times.  

Sun Salutations

Developing a daily routine doing Sun Salutations is a perfect way to affirm the dawn of a new day.  These twelve flowing movements enable you to stay in touch with your inner self. You will find total BEING, grounded in an awareness of a quiet surrender of connection to your heart.  Additionally, as you repeat the sequence movements over and over again, the body warms up to a healthier nervous system and a good sense of being.

Here you get 2 asanas for one.  They Lengthen the entire spine by arching in (cow) and rounding in (cat). Each pose strengthens and improve posture and balance,  spine and neck, abdominals and hips, as well as the upper and lower back.  

Corpse Pose (Savasana)

In yoga we call this your final relaxation pose.  The purpose is to help relieve the mind, body and any stress from your practice.  This pose has been found to lower blood pressure as well as mild depression.  The idea during this pose is to melt away into the earth, knowing that the earth is holding you.  This is the perfect time to quiet the brain, ground the body into a quiet meditative state.

Yoga Poses to Relieve Neck Pain

In most yoga poses it helps to keep the neck in line with the spine.  Here's a practice you can do on a daily basis.  Stay mindful of relaxing your shoulders down away from the ears to avoid tension and stress in the neck. Below are a series of suggested poses intended to relief neck pain.  Always make your intention before any practice.  Find your flow with moving systematically using your breath (inhale, exhale).  Neck stretches should lengthen the muscles of the neck and upper back for comfort and improved mobility.  At least 3 to 5 times for each pose.  KNOW YOUR LIMITS if the body do not want to go, then don't do it. Only do what feels comfortable for you.  The rest will come. 

Head Tilts - Bending head to right, back center, bending head to left then back center

Head Turns - Turning head to the right, back center, turning head to left and back center

Cat and Cow (Bitilasana and Marjariasana) are flowing pose done together to bring flexibility  to the entire spine as well as strengthens the back and neck.

Cow Pose - Hands and knees on floor like a table top position.  Inhale rounding the back as you look downward

 Cat Pose - Exhale arching the back as you look up and forward
