Neck-Position-in-Camel-PoseHi Melissa,

What is the best position for the head/neck in camel pose?When in full camel,is it ok to let the head rest back or is it better to tuck the chin? Namaste, Michelle

Dear Michelle

This is a question of what feels better in your body. You can elongate your neck if it feels alright in your neck and you are not hyper-extending your neck (as long as it goes with the natural curve of your spine). Often camel is taught with a tucked chin because so many people have neck issues and this is a nice way to keep your neck safe if there are any neck issues. See what feels best in your body.

Namaste, Melissa
