As some of you may or may not know, besides being a dyer and artist, I'm also a Pilates instructor, teaching at Studio Blue in Portland, Oregon. I am always reading dyers and knitters and spinners complaints of neck and back tension, which is almost inevitable with the posture those activities tend to require of us! One of my most favorite things to teach is exercises to relieve some of that tension, so I've made some videos of three foam roller restorative exercises that will make you feel amazing. They're not polished, but hopefully you can overlook that!
Foam rollers come in many densities and sizes; no matter which density you get, I strongly recommend you purchase a body length roller. There are so many exercises you can do with it, from restorative to strengthening, that are not possible with a shorter roller.
I hope these help ease some of your neck and shoulder tension!
