This gentle flow offers neck tension relief while teaching the important principle of cervical spine alignment often referred to as skull draw. With the physical focus on the neck, the message for the mat explores Judas and the shame he carried for turning Jesus over to be crucified for a measly hand full of silver coins. Shame can be as intensely limiting as neck pain. The need of shame is attunement; without it the tension of this downward alone spiral can lead to death. Jesus offers another option. The practice offers relief as does the forgiveness of the cross.
