Motion is lotion for our joints!

In yoga we tend to focus our movements within just three planes of motion. This simple exercise takes the many small facet joints in our neck through their entire spectrum of movement. This imbibes and enhances lubrication of the protective cartilage within the facet joints as well as the discs between each vertebra. If you hear crepitus (a creaky sound!) during this movement there may already be signs of degeneration within your joints. This is a great pre-habilitative and therapeutic movement!

Always with you on the mat,
