Seven vertebrae comprise the cervical area – more commonly known as the ‘neck’.  This delicate, highly mobile region is prone to pain and discomfort – especially among  those who work on computers for extended periods of time, but also amongst artists and carfts-people like potters, carpenters , tailors.

While this session is recommended to keep the neck/ shoulder area pain free, mobile and strong, those who already have weakness/ injuries in these areas should use caution – especially in the overhead arm positions.
