Anusara Yoga expert Desirée Rumbaugh shows you how to alleviate pain and stiffness in your neck and shoulders, bringing ease and enjoyment back to your life. Each posture works to reduce stress, fight fatigue, and release tension in the upper body. The program is divided into two segments: a 30-minute tutorial and a 30-minute flowing sequence. In the tutorial, Desirée breaks down each move to teach the proper alignment and positioning. The flowing sequence allows you to practice what you learn. Choose the poses that work for you and do them anywhere for instant relief, or perform the flowing sequence regularly to remain relaxed and pain-free.
