In this bitterly cold weather, the tendency to pull our heads down into scarves and collars, and pull our shoulders up to our ears in an attempt to stay warm, is hard to resist. But, don’t go there! It will just give you a stiff neck and aching shoulders, like other activities that encourage hunched shoulders and tense necks – lap tops and computers being among the worst culprits.
For those of you who have had Alexander lessons, remember to free your neck to let your head float; let your shoulders relax and widen into the big V up the front and down the back.
For those who haven’t had Alexander lessons, book a lesson to be initiated into the mysteries of the Alexander Technique and banish stiff necks and tense shoulders from your life.
