Hey, I hope you are having a great Wednesday.
Before I get to today’s post, I wanted to remind you about the email that I sent out yesterday. In yesterday’s email, I talked about a new DVD that I am giving out and how you can grab your own copy for FREE. Find out more about it here.
Now moving on to today’s post, I talked about a great stretch that you can do to correct forward head carriage.
Give this exercise a go and I’ll talk to you again later!
In this video, I wanted to go through the number 1 stretch for forward head carriage.
#1 Stretch for Forward Head Carriage
CLICK HERE to watch the YouTube video.
I will get Alix to demonstrate it.
Standing tall, look straight ahead and then drop your head to the side. Look for a light stretch on the opposite side. Remember to stand tall, so you’re not rounded through your shoulder. Otherwise you won’t feel much of the stretch. Your head is moving and you are dropping your head to the side, looking for a stretch in the opposite side. Your shoulders should not be moving in any way.
Dropping the Ear to the Shoulders
You are looking for a light stretch. Hold it for about 20 seconds, going twice on each side. Although you can do this exercise standing, I find this exercise more effective if you do it in sitting position. You can go through this stretch at work or while you are sitting and watching TV.
So there you go, that is the number 1 stretch for forward head carriage.
