The scalene muscles are essential to keeping the head on straight. Most anatomists identify the scalenes as the “iliopsoas of the neck” given their essential role in cervical balance. Totaling 6 muscles (3 on each side) we balance the neck through standing poses, headstand preps, and twists.
- Have your props handy! We recommend two blocks, blankets, a thick bolster, an 8’ or 10’ belt/strap, and a backless chair (modifications will be given if you do not have a chair). We recommend yogaoutlet.com and Manduka for props; backless chairs can be found on Amazon and Etsy.
- We also strongly recommend having a physio ball on hand (or a tennis ball should do just fine as well!)
- Please note that all classes are in Mountain Time.
- Can’t join us at 9am MT because of your schedule or time zone? We’ve got you covered! Reserve your seat and all video recordings will be emailed to you with 10 days access.
