NECK TILTS

Sitting cross-legged, hands resting on knees, palms facing up, gently tilt your head to the right, lengthening the left side of your neck. For a deep stretch, place your right hand over your left ear and gently ease your head over further. Hold until you feel the pressure release, and then repeat on the other side.
