    Thanks for all of the good advice Sheri. Here’s another question

    I have subluxation in my neck and osteoporosis which is back to the baseline of 10 years ago with bisphosphonates. I saw a physio about my neck and she was concerned about shoulder stands putting stress on the neck. Do you think that is something to worry about?
    Would a little round cushion for neck support be better or worse, to use during mat exercise?
