Move: Sit or stand tall. Press your shoulders down by pulling your shoulder blades down deep into your back. Drop your right ear toward your right shoulder. Intensify the stretch by reaching the left arm down and behind or by using your right arm to gently pull your head farther to the right. You should feel this stretch from the area behind the left ear to the tip of the left shoulder. Repeat, dropping the left ear toward the left shoulder. Hold each side for 20 to 30 seconds.
• Press your shoulder blades down deep into your back to get your shoulders down and stretch your neck long.
• The stretch can also be performed in rotation. Anchor the shoulder blades and shoulders down deep into your back. Turn your head rather than tipping it.
