Yoga for Your Neck

We all know how it feels to have neck pain. It can be very painful, limit us in movement and cause headache or upper back pain.
In a time where computers and phones are becoming more and more important, we spend so much time staring at our devices, without being aware until we feel the pain.

Did you know that our head weighs around 4,5kg (10 pounds)? Now imagine having your head tilt forward for hours and hours, whilst using your phone, sitting at the desk, reading a book.
Do you think that is healthy?

I have put a few neck stretching exercises together, which should help to reduce neck discomfort. Make sure you repeat these exercises regularly and take a few breaks at work where you are not starring at a screen.

20 MIN POWER VINYASA YOGA FLOW

I am sharing with you a 20-min yoga sequence, which you can do if you have limited time or even post cardio workout.

As you can see, I have just been back from a run and here are some stretching exercises which you can do if you still have a bit of energy left.

I am giving you options in this video, so it should be ok to do for everyone. Of course if you are more experienced, you can try to do the more advanced yoga inversions.

Enjoy!

YOGA FOR MENSTRUATION

In my new YouTube video, I am showing you 8 yoga asanas which you can do when menstruating.

You might feel low in energy, or you might have extreme pain, your mood changes, you feel tired, bloated, or you just want to stay in bed for the first few days of your period. This is what all women have to deal with.

This is an important time for women to listen to our bodies, to reconnect, feel grounded and relaxed.
If you do want to do some yoga though, you should avoid strong asanas particularly strong backbends, twists, arm balances, standing positions that put a lot of stress on the abdominal and pelvic region and inversions, because they are against the natural flow and this is why it is so controversial.

Gentle forward bends are nice as they give a light massage to the abdominal and pelvic region
and bring calmness to the mind.

Pranayama, breathing techniques are very useful during menstruation, yoga nidra and meditation. They help to feel more grounded and helps to calm the mind.

I hope you enjoy this yoga sequence.

Namaste,
Zeynep
