This excerpt from my class ‘Releasing the Neck, Jaw and Shoulders’ at Conscious 2 TV is a simple practice to help loosen up the flow of communication between the brain and the pelvis. Being held by the ground means we can create space in the spine without the tension created when we hold ourselves vertically upright from gravity.

All you need is a chair for this complete sequence with Charlotte Watts that cleverly moves your body in the major ways yoga poses cover; a twist, forward bend, backbend, standing pose (with balance component) and inversion.
