Get Instant Relief for a Tight Neck with This Simple Exercise

Do you ever wake up in the morning with so much tension in your neck that it feels like piano wire connects your head to your body instead of muscles?

This happens to me sometimes, and on those days, whether it’s from sleeping in a weird position or clenching my jaw all night, there’s a stretch I love that creates instant relief. 

It’s a go-to exercise I practice before getting out of bed, and I’m excited to share it with you in today’s video.

Check it out, and I’d love to know how it goes if you give it a try! You can reply to this email or leave a comment below and tell me.

With neck tension relief,


P.S. Change is in the air, and I’m not just talking about springtime! 

Updates are in the works for Pilates Tonic Online (PTO).

PTO is not just another online program. It's a unique monthly membership packed with restorative exercises (material you won’t find in a regular Pilates class) designed to help you improve your alignment and ease aches and pains as you get stronger and more flexible. It's a valuable opportunity to invest in your health and wellness.

Enrollment for new members is closing soon, so we can get these exciting new updates in place.

If you’ve been curious about PTO, now is the perfect time to sign up so you can lock in the current price (which you then get to keep for as long as you remain a member!). 

When enrollment reopens, the price will increase to better reflect the value of this unique program. This is because we are constantly updating and adding new content to ensure you get the most out of your membership.

Here’s what one member had to say about PTO…

PTO is a whole program.

It's not just setting aside 30 minutes to do exercises; Sydney shows you how to move more throughout the day by building moves into other things you're already doing. That way, you're moving throughout the day, and that's so much different.

When I started with PTO, I could only sit for 10-15 minutes without pain.

Now I can sit for a couple of hours without pain, and even three if I get up and move around/stretch for a bit in the middle.

Learning what kind of stretches and exercises to do has really helped. She explains how to do everything in the right posture, which makes it so much easier to understand.

I also appreciate that I can ask Sydney questions through PTO, and she answers them. Because a lot of these things you join online, you just have to figure it out, and you don't get to ask questions. So that's a really big bonus!

Picture a life where your movements are effortless, pain is a thing of the past, and you have the energy and strength to do what you love every day.

Join today and feel the difference—your body will thank you.
