Start you weekend off right with some stress relieving stretches!
You will find that most stress relieving stretches are long, passive reclining poses. Small muscle groups are used to activate these stretches, but most do not require extensive use of muscle groups.

As you relax, allow air from your diaphragm to push slowly and gently against your neck so …
