Head circles are fantastic for the neck. This is one of the most beneficial exercises for academic students and those involved long hours in front of a computer.
1. When you perform the head circles you may feel and hear popping sensations and sounds as the articulating processes of the cervical vertebrae are moved around.
2. Be sure, if you feel any pains, to move around the pains. Do not rotate directly into your pain. Those with nerve and disc issues should proceed with caution and consult with your doctor.
3. Stand in the Tadasana. Breathe into your nose and out you nose. Then circle your head 10 times. Circle the head completely around the neck. While breathing try to breathe out as you title your head forward. Then breathe in as you title your head back.
4. Keep your back straight at all times. Do not slouch the spine. Simultaneously do not tilt the torso forward when the head rotates forward.
5. Move slowly and smoothly while feeling your neck throughout the exercise. After you complete 10 switch directions. This is a very pleasant exercise and may be practiced for more repetitions if desired.
