Neck Stretches

First sit cross-legged, tall and straight, and inhale eyes forward. Slowly release your breath moving chin to chest. Repeat this processes five times, the fifth time holding chin to chest breathing three times through the nose. Start inhaling raising the head to center again. 

This time drop your right ear to your right shoulder during the exhale. Repeat the same process by dropping left ear to left shoulder.

Half-Circle Rolls

Drop your chin to chest. Slowly move it to your right shoulder, down to center, up to the left shoulder and down to center. Repeat this exercise three to five times. Never roll the head in a full circle, as this can result into serious injury.

Shoulder Hunches

Hunch your shoulders up as high as you can, then relax them completely. Do it for at east three to five times. Inhale while raising your hands behind your back, squeezing your shoulder blades together and tucking your tailbone under to keep from over-arching your back. 

Keep this position for at least three to five breaths and lower your arms slowly during the next exhale.

Arm Lifts

Hold your arms straight in front of a mirror, parallel to the ground with palms facing each other without touching. Inhale while bringing them up next to your head. 

Exhale while you bring them down again. Repeat this exercise four to eight times.
