Time for a Yoga Break
As bloggers most of our time is spent sitting in a chair, hunched over a keyboard. And this will often give us a big pain in the neck! Ease the tension in your neck and shoulders using simple self massage and yoga techniques presented in this video.
No equipment is needed and you can do this while sitting in your chair. Go to a quiet room, or use headphones if you can, and pay close attention to your breath.
The story behind this yoga video
Ntathu Allen is a yoga teacher, writer and blogger at YogaInspires. I first came in contact with Ntathu when she entered Kiesha Easley's Surviving the Blog Contest, and meeting her reminded me of how much I miss practicing yoga.
As I read one of Ntathu's contest posts called Yoga for Bloggers – Simple Self Massage to Ease a Sore Neck and Stiff Shoulders I was moved to recite the piece for my podcast. Ntathu was so pleased with the podcast, that I decided to take things to the next level and create a YouTube video using some still shots and the video creation tool called Animoto. I hope you enjoy the video come back and watch it again whenever you want to relax. If you get a chance, please do me a favor and give it a thumbs up or leave a comment over on YouTube.
With all the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping on top of a hectic blogging schedule, it makes sense to take a few moments to relax and pamper yourself a little. Practicing yoga is a great way to soothe your spirit, but I'm sure you can think of others. What do you do when your neck starts to feel tight and sore or if you just need to take a break – have you tried practicing yoga before?
