  • Sitting in a chair, place your knees hip-width apart and your feet flat on the floor.

  • Inhale as you sweep your arms overhead.

  • Feel as if you are pressing the walls apart with your hands as you exhale and release your arms to your sides.

  • Inhale, look up to the ceiling and open up your chest as you press your hands onto the tops of your thighs.

  • Exhale as you lean forward, either resting your arms on your thighs or letting your head drop between your legs.

  • With an inhale, slowly roll up to an upright position.

  • Rest your hands on your thighs, close your eyes and take a few calm breaths.
