The most important word is – Let.
Let the neck be free – this lets the head go forward and up – taking the downward pressure off the spine.
This lets the back lengthen and widen – three dimensionally – the front the sides the back – the trunk or whole torso – from the sitting bones upwards.
At the same time directing the legs and arms away from the torso – the whole being expanding.
In summary – the neck frees then the directions move from the base of the spine outwards.
