Elongating Neck

Recommended Posts

Esmeralda

I have short neck, and at YAGP I have received comments from the judges saying to elongate my neck more. Do you have any advice on how to accomplish this, as obviously I cannot physically alter the length of my neck?

Thank you!

True, you can't physically change the length of your neck. However, you CAN do a couple of things to help. First, be sure your shoulders are down. Second, take a breath, exhale to drop the shoulders, and image you are very elegant, tall, and feeling you are being gently lifted from the top of the head.   The way one holds...and USES...their head can make a huge difference in overall appearance!  :D
