    Alycea, your cue to press the head into the mat is a new cue for me. I have said many times to my clients, ” Avoid using your head as a kick stand for your body, because it creates tension in the neck.” But what I realize is that pressing the head into the mat as part of the stabilizer muscles for exercises like control balance, also creates strength and length in those muscles, when done correctly. Interesting! Jeri
