yoga for t.m.j and neck pain

lionposeSit on your shins in lion pose. Open the jaw and extend the tongue toward your chin as you exhale (I know but bare with me). Then, move both the tongue and eyes  in unison as you move them up, down and to the sides.

camelposeAs you come into camel pose, be mindful of the open chest, neck, base of skull, and jaw, notice if you are holding any tension in these areas. Open the mouth and extend the tongue. Repeat the sequence then move into Lions Pose or to Down Dog.

In downward-facing dog pose, rest your forehead on a bolster. Breathe feeling the tension releasing from the chest, neck, base of skull, and jaw.
