Neck pain is a common complaint. In general, muscle spasms in the neck muscles are due to poor posture and work habits or lifestyle that results in neck pain. We may sleep with a crooked neck, hold the phone to our ear with our shoulder or work at the computer all day long with the shoulders tensed. Most people can expect to experience some degree of neck pain in their lives and often do not experience a complete resolution of symptoms with 50-85% of recurrence in 1-5 years since initial complaint. Less serious neck pain may be interpreted as a general feeling of stiffness and muscles aches.

Chronic neck pain is associated with head and face pain, headaches, jaw discomfort, upper back, shoulders & arm pain. Tingling in fingers, achy arms and a vice-like pressure encircling the skull may all be related to neck pain. In addition a slumped posture that can lead to neck pain, may compress internal organs, contributing to respiratory, circulatory and digestive problems as well.

Yoga postures help stretch the tight muscles and strengthen the weak ones, cultivating flexibility, stability and ease of movement. They also help release physical and emotional blockages, facilitating a healthy flow of prana. Yoga helps to shed light on one’s habitual stress patterns and emotional reactions. It also helps to reduce stress and tension in the neck area.

In this workshop the practice of Yogic Shatkarmas, Pranayamas, Asanas, Mudras, Meditation & Yoga Nidra will be covered.
