Sitting in a chair, feet flat on the floor, spine straight but not stiff, slowly drop your chin to your chest, opening the back of the neck. Drop your right ear down towards your right shoulder, gently opening the left side of your neck. Bring head back to center slowly, chin down toward chest, opening the back of the neck. Repeat on left side, opening the right side of the neck. Roll back to center. Repeat cycle several times, breathing comfortably, ending with the chin on the chest. Slowly pour the weight of the head up, stacking each of the seven neck vertebrae, allowing the head to find a position of balance.
