Remove Body Cobwebs with This Simple Neck Exercise

Raise your hand if you love easy exercises that fit seamlessly into your day.

If your hand is up, I have an exercise for you to try right away.

It’s mostly for your neck, but there’s a good chance you’ll feel this one down to your low back.

I’ll demonstrate two ways to practice it, one with alignment points and one without.

Knowing exactly where your bones are when you stretch (AKA your alignment) makes stretching safer and makes it easier to find areas you may miss with regular stretching.

Using alignment points is kind of like cleaning out cobwebs in the corners of a room—they’re easy to miss unless you get deliberate about dusting them out and you might even need one of those Swiffers on a long pole to reach them.

I can’t wait to hear how this one feels for you. After you try it out, leave a note for me in the comments below and let me know.

Happy Swiffering,

P.S. In my next post, you’ll learn my favorite stretch for the front of your neck and jaw. So stay tuned!
