Today's video is short, sweet, and to the point: STOP CRUNCHING YOUR NECK (!!!!). I am SO done with seeing people do crazy things with their cervical spine in yoga. We must stop.
Yoga is meant to heal and correct misalignments in the body, not reiterate or encourage them. This video is for both students of yoga--so you can become aware of this issue and figure out if you're doing it in your body when you practice--and teachers, so that you can start correcting this crazy neck alignment when you see it in your classes.
There's a time and a place for neck crunching (I guess?), but it's not here.
So enjoy the vid! You can watch it here or subscribe to my YouTube channel to ensure that you never miss an episode.
Oh, and please pay attention to your posture while watching the video--lets not do weird things with our necks while watching a video about taking care of our necks ;)
