    with Flexibility
    in mind for each and every session to get the body prepared for a good stretch! This is a ‘ head to toe
    ’ warm up for the joints to prepare your body for a stretch, albeit a 15 minute or even a 2 hour stretch! I always repeat every stretch and least twice. 1. NECK
    -head looking down to the ground, up to the ceiling. -head looking to the left, to the the right. -head looking 45 degrees to the left with left hand gently pull chin to chest, repeat 45 degrees to the right. -neck rotations start chin to chest slowly rotate in semi circle to the back, return to the front, rotate opposite side, return to front. 2. ....
