Warrior Heal Thyself: The Neck

Desiree Rumbaugh & Michelle Marchildon

Fearless After Fifty, Chapter Six

Our fragile necks! Who designed this body where a 10-pound “bowling ball” of a head is balanced on seven tiny cervical bones? Certainly, not us. But nevertheless, here we are in a new age where we spend more time than ever in a forward position looking at technology screens. While this chapter delves into all the major physical challenges that older warriors face in life, our yoga concentrates on the neck. Problems with the neck – including vertigo, fracture and nerve damage from bulging discs – are now prevalent in midlife. In this video, Desiree shows exercises to build strength and the proper placement of the head in her “double-chin face.” Poses include Warrior One, Bridge Pose (Setu Bandhasana), a variation of Bridge called Chatush Padasana, the bow (Dhanurasana) and wheel poses (Urdhva Dhanurasana) and more. This class is mostly a detailed demonstration of postures to practice.
