Yoga to the Rescue for Neck & Shoulders
Yoga to the Rescue for Neck & Shoulders, with Desirée Rumbaugh. Acacia; acacialifestyle.com
Anusara Yoga teacher Desiré:e Rumbaugh has created a DVD designed to target tight and aching necks and shoulders.
She starts with a tutorial that breaks down a dozen or so asana-based exercises. With excellent modeling and precise instruction, Rumbaugh gives viewers an opportunity to experience each pose individually and understand its nuts and bolts before putting it into play. Because of the steady pace of the sequences that follow the tutorial, beginners should find this guide especially useful. Since this is a "rescue" for neck and shoulders, there are lots of backbends and chest openers. This is a highly accessible practice that will appeal to a broad audience of stiff-necked and tight-shouldered students.
