Lisa West: This is Spinal Tap. Saturday Afternoon

Today we focused on the upper back and Neck.

She began with us in a Supine Baddha Konasana.
Seated Meditation

Then she presented the bones, muscles and nerves of the neck along with some common injuries.

We then moved into a great practice with lots of very cool easy gentle neck stretches.
My favorite was when we used our hands to pull down the skin of our collarbone region and stretched the neck from there. I am so teaching that tomorrow if right.

Eventually we moved to savasana and took a break.

We came back to look at posture patterns and how to diagnosis what was tight and what was weak. This was very cool and helpful. We broke up into parnters and looked at each other.

Savasana and closing.
