Neck Exercises: Neck Glide

To start, lie on your back, knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Keep your ears, shoulders, and hips aligned. Don’t press your lower back to the floor. Rest your hands on your pelvis. Breathe deeply and relax:

  • Gently flatten the curve of your neck against the floor.

  • Lengthen your neck as though you’re growing taller. Don’t jam your chin into your chest, and don’t push too hard.

  • Hold for five seconds. Release. Repeat three times.
