Yoga Poses for Fibromyalgia Patients : Yoga Neck Stretch for Fibromyalgia Patients


I’m going to be demonstrating the neck stretch.
Very important to keep the neck area nice and flexible and loose, because it tends to
tense up and begin to get very tight where those sore spots are in the neck area. So,
it’s a very simple stretch for the neck. We’re going to inhale first through the middle.
You’re going to exhale, and drop the ear to the shoulder. Keep your shoulders down, that’s
very important, stay very tall. Now, as you take that down, drop the chin to the chest
and roll it around. Still stay very tall in your back. Then hold to the other side. Take
a breath there, then exhale, and roll the chin along the chest, to the ear, hold that
again, take a deep breath. Remember those ribs are opening, but the abdominals are in,
exhale, and roll to the other side. You take another breath here, with an inhale, open
those ribs. Then you’ll exhale. Keep the face soft and the eyes relaxed. Try not to tense
in the shoulder area. Now, we bring that back up and with a slight tug on the top of the
ear or the head, very easy, drop that over and take a deep breath. Hold that for one
breath and then switch to the other side. Remember, you’re not holding for too long
at one time. If you have fibromyalgia, usually one breath is good, and then move to the next
one. Then simply stay very tall, drop the chin to the chest, kind of loosen the neck
in a very easy tug, then hold it to the center and look back up again. You’ll do that again.
You’ll drop the chin down, inhaling, and you’ll just exhale and loosen real easy. Keep the
shoulders back. You’ll want to do that one, one more time through. So, as you do this,
go through the neck stretch to the ears, to the shoulder, again, back to the chin to the
chest, and do it at least three times through. Take deep breaths while you’re there.
