The Gentle Mom-to-Be Workout

Neck Roll

  • Sit with legs crossed.
  • Tip your chin down toward your chest, then bring it around so you can look over one shoulder.
  • Hold for a moment, then slowly roll your chin down across your chest until you are looking over the other shoulder.
  • Inhale while looking over your shoulder and exhale during movement.
  • Repeat.

Benefits
Neck rolls help relax tight neck muscles, decrease upper backache and improve posture.

Precautions
Don't tip your head back or circle your neck too far around. This stresses the joints and nerves in the back of the neck.
