Pilates Exercise of The Month – Healthy Neck Circles

Small movements play as great a part in effective exercise as large, full body, or full range movements.   To keep the neck healthy practice drawing a small circle with your nose.  Relax the shoulders and gently draw the imaginary circle clockwise three times and then anti clockwise three times.  The exercise can be easily performed whilst at your desk.  When at home perform the same exercise lying on your back on the floor in a relaxed anatomical position, then imagine drawing a circle slowly with your hips and pelvis and repeat anti clockwise.  Repeat in both directions at least three times.  Advanced progression is to do both at once!
