AS A YOGA AND PILATES TEACHER, I THOUGHT I WAS DOING EVERYTHING RIGHT TO TAKE CARE OF MY NECK.
I regularly stretched my neck and received massage and acupuncture. Despite this, I was plagued by chronic neck tension and pain.
I couldn’t lift my head in a Pilates class to do the hundred without supporting my head in my hands. It hurt to turn my head to look up at my hand in triangle pose. Answering email was enough to set off a tension headache that would stop me from being able to use my computer for the rest of the day. I bought dozens of different pillows trying to find one that would prevent me from waking up with neck pain.
I felt like a fraud because I made a living teaching people how to feel better when I felt awful and couldn't even help myself. What I was doing wasn’t working. I knew there had to be a better solution.
UNWRECK YOUR NECK is a 2.5 hour online workshop to help you and your students decrease neck stiffness, improve range of motion, and reduce the risk of injury.
UNWRECK YOUR NECK IS FOR YOU IF...
You’ve been cleared to exercise by your doctor or physical therapist and you’re looking for a transition back to regular movement after rehabilitation from an injury.
You have general tension/stiffness and you want to improve alignment and mobility or reduce your risk of injury or re-injury
UNWRECK YOUR NECK IS NOT FOR YOU IF...
You have ongoing, undiagnosed and untreated pain
You suspect you have an underlying trauma or injury
You have not been cleared to exercise by your doctor or physical therapist
(Please note that if you have any questions or concerns about taking a workshop or you have ongoing pain, it is recommended that you consult a medical professional.)
IN THIS WORKSHOP YOU WILL LEARN:
- Common lesser known reasons for neck tension and pain
- Exercises to mobilize your upper back and shoulders to create a foundation for a stable, strong, and healthy neck
- Specific self-assessments to track progress and help you and your students become more aware of how alignment and posture affects the neck
- Strategies to induce relaxation + reduce stress to help you recruit the right muscles and get the most out of the corrective neck exercises
- Preparatory exercises to improve your neck stability and function
UNWRECK YOUR NECK DOES NOT DISAPPOINT!
"UnWreck Your Neck does not disappoint! This workshop beautifully combines a number of strategies including self massage, stretching, and strengthening.

Got a question? Let’s see if this helps.
Q: I HEARD THAT IT WAS BAD TO USE YOUR NECK DURING EXERCISE. WHY WOULD I WANT TO STRENGTHEN IT?
Your neck is like every other structure in your body. It works and feels best when the muscles around it are strong and able to support it during movement.
Also, we now know that when muscles are weak, you are more likely to experience tension and joint discomfort in the surrounding areas. However, thoughtfully stabilizing and strengthening these areas can help you move and feel better.
It’s also important to note that the exercises required for neck strength and stability aren’t going to target large muscle groups or give you a more “muscular” neck. Rather the exercises in this workshop have been designed to address the smaller muscles in the neck that are often underworked and difficult to access in traditional yoga poses or fitness exercises.
Q: I HAVE A SPECIFIC NECK CONDITION OR INJURY. IS IT SAFE FOR ME TO TAKE THIS WORKSHOP?
I am not a medical professional, so it is out of my scope of practice to assess, diagnose or treat you. If you have any concerns, it is advised that you consult a medical professional to determine if it is appropriate for you to start an exercise program or take this workshop.
Q: I'M NOT A MOVEMENT TEACHER. IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR ME?
Yes! I created this workshop to give movement enthusiasts and movement teachers alike tools to better take care of their bodies. The exercises in this workshop are designed for anyone with an interest in longevity and helping their necks feel better.
Q: CAN THIS WORKSHOP REPLACE PHYSICAL THERAPY?
This workshop cannot replace physical therapy.
Q: WHAT PROPS DO I NEED TO TAKE THIS WORKSHOP?
For this workshop, you will need two yoga blocks or books, a blanket or bath towel, a yoga strap or towel and a loop band or theraband.
Q: I DON'T HAVE 2 HOURS TO WATCH A WORKSHOP OR PRACTICE THE EXERCISES. DO I HAVE TO DO IT ALL AT ONCE?
Once your purchase Unwreck Your Neck, it’s yours to keep forever. This means that you could watch the workshop or practice the exercises in 10 to 20 minute increments and still receive the benefits!
Q: HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO PRACTICE THESE EXERCISES TO SEE RESULTS?
While this workshop is over 2 hours long, it doesn’t mean that you need to practice neck exercises for 2 hours a day to get results. Rather, I’d recommend that you take note of which exercises feel best for you or your students and then make them a regular part of your movement practice or classes.
You can think about it like brushing your teeth. If you spend a few minutes a day on this, your neck can feel and move better long term!
MY PAST RESULTS WERE TEMPORARY AT BEST
"As a yoga teacher, I receive daily requests for help with neck pain & discomfort. I’d tried various techniques on myself and others in the past, with temporary results at best. Trina’s teaching comes from her unique understanding of movement and function. The results from UnWreck Your Neck were beyond incredible...simple techniques with huge relief!"
