Day 343-Neck Stretch Lateral Flexion

This exercise is intended to lengthen the muscles of the neck.

To do this exercise you will need a mat.  Start sitting with your knees bent and your ankles crossed.  Inhale into the back of your ribs and exhale as you reach your ear towards the ceiling.  Feel the length in the side of your neck.  Take three breaths here and then repeat on the other side.  

Things to think about
This exercise is about reaching one ear to the ceiling not touching the other ear towards the shoulder.  Imagine lengthening both sides of the neck as you reach the ear to the ceiling

As you stretch your neck be sure that both sides of the pelvis are connected to the ground
