I think it's safe to say that most people experience neck and shoulder tension to some degree. Whenever we are not fully present, it is easy to accumulate tension in the body. On a daily basis, I will notice myself unconsciously holding tension in my neck and shoulders. Bringing our awareness to this tension is the first step toward softening and releasing it. Today we are using gentle movement and stretch to relax the neck and shoulders so that we can release this tension. I often find that when this area of my body relaxes, the rest of my body feels less tense as well.
