If you’re stuck in front of a computer at your desk all day, five days a week, chances are your neck is overstretched and also taxing your disks. Jill Miller demonstrated a technique created to build up and strengthen those muscles.

“You can take a book…and pull that block behind your head so that it sits right at the base of your skill – literally right where your skull meets your neck and then pull your head into the block” Miller explained.

We have all been guilty of leaning forward on a key-board, or carrying children or heavy handbags can leave you with painful shoulders. Miller said that a stretch called “floating angel arms” are the excellent solution. Just take a towel, strap or belt, as well as pull it against your legs like you’re trying to break it.

“Pull the towel apart and twist your arms so that your elbows and palms face out,” Miller said. “Simultaneously while you are pulling back and out, you’re twisting.  Hold that for about 30 seconds, and then let go – and if you did it correctly, your arms will just involuntarily rise up like a floating angel. It feels so cool”.

“Now what happens here is that the deep, deep hip flexer called the psoas and all those other hip flexers get so tight from sitting all day long,” Miller said.  “…And then straighten your leg”.

For sore and aching feet, Jill Miller suggested utilizing a tennis ball or her “Yoga Tune Up” balls to roll out the joints as well as the soft cells.
