Extend from your fingertips all the way to your toes, breathing deeply as you stretch. Move the legs to the left and grab the right wrist with the left hand, stretching out the right side of the body. Repeat on the opposite side. Hold each stretch for 8 counts. Bring your knees to your chest, gently breathing and relaxing into this position. Brings your knees to one side and stretch your arms out to a T position. Gently turn your head to the opposite direction. Again, this should feel good. Listen to your body and allow yourself to relax and breath. Repeat on the opposite side. Hold on each side for 8 counts. Pelvic Lifts – Releases chronic tension that we hold in our abdominal area and sends a boost of energy to the entire body. Bend your knees and bring your feet up by the buttocks, keeping the feet flat on the floor. Relax your arms at your sides. Slowly arch the hips up, lifting the naval up towards the sky. As you lift up, inhale through the nose lifting as high as possible. Slowly relax down exhaling through the nose. Repeat a minimum of 12 times, a maximum of 26 times. Cat-Cow stretch – strengthens and stretches the spine, neck, hips, abdomen and back. Massages and stimulates kidneys and adrenal glands. Come on to hands and knees with hips directly over the knees and shoulders, elbows and wrists perpendicular to the floor. Back is straight in table top position and neck is relaxed and long. Come into cow pose. As you inhale, simultaneously lift your sit bones upward, press your chest forward, and allow your belly to sink towards the floor. Lift your head, relax your shoulders away from your ears, and gaze straight ahead. As you exhale, come into Cat Pose. Simultaneously round your spine outward, tuck your tailbone, and draw your pubic bone forward. Release your head toward the floor, but don’t force your chin to your chest. Note: if you have a neck injury, keep your head in line with your torso throughout Cat-Cow. Go back and forth between Cow and Cat on each inhale and exhale, matching your movements to your own breathing. Do this for 5-10 breaths and try to keep an even distribution of weight between your hands and knees. Heart Strengthener Exercise – relaxes the muscles surrounding the heart and expands the lungs and there is a general cleansing of the entire upper torso by the stimulated activity of the lymphatic system. Also helps to relax the muscles of the neck and shoulder. Helps to extend and strengthen the magnetic field around the body. Sit in comfortable cross-legged position or in a chair with back straight and both feet flat on the floor. Raise your arms to a 60 degree angle, arms are straight, palms facing up and fingers side by side. Long deep breathing through the nose. Hold for a minimum of one minute – maximum of 3 minutes. At the end of the time period, inhale deeply and hold the breath for 10 seconds. Exhale and relax the arms down, resting the hands on your lap. Neck Rolls – Necks were designed to turn! If yours doesn’t, then it means you are not getting the proper amount of blood to the brain, as tense neck muscles restrict blood flow and slow down the nerve impulses from the brain to the rest of your body. Sit in a comfortable position with the spine straight and feet flat if you are sitting in a chair. Breathe in and drop the right ear to the right shoulder and then let the neck gently roll back. Exhale as you bring your left ear to your left shoulder and then gently bring your chin to your chest. Continue 12 times in one direction and then switch directions. I AM I AM MEDITATION This is a specific meditation for connecting the finite physical identity and the Infinite identity of the Higher Self. The first "I Am" emphasizes the "I" and is the personal and finite sense of self. The second "I Am" emphasizes slightly the "Am" and is the impersonal and transcendent sense of the Self. We all have thoughts about who we are – I am a woman, I am a mother, I am good, I am bad. Beyond the descriptions that we have of ourselves and others is the reality that who we are is beyond description. Who we are is an exquisite expression of the Divine. This meditation will help your experience your true identity. It creates a calm feeling even in the middle of a storm. Sit comfortable with your spine straight. Take your left hand and place it in front of your heart about 6 inches away with palm facing you and fingers pointing up... Inhale deeply and in a soft voice say, “I am,” bring your palm 2 inches closer to your chest and say “I am” and then move your palm 12 inches away and repeat, “I am.” Inhale and bring your hand back to the original position. Repeat for a minimum of 3 minutes, a maximum of 11 minutes. Inhale and relax hands down into your lap. Great to do in the morning to establish a calm center for your day.

Notes for todays show:LONG DEEP BREATHING Lie down or sit in a chair or on the floor where you can comfortably have a straight spine. This allows the ribs and muscles to move more freely and allows the energy to flow freely. The whole breath is done very slowly and consciously, and the air moves in and out through your nose, not your mouth. Place your fingertips lightly on your abdomen. Close your eyes and turn your attention inward. Long Deep Breathing starts by filling the abdomen, then expanding the chest, and finally lifting the upper ribs and clavicle. The exhale is the reverse: first the upper deflates, then the middle, and finally the abdomen pulls in and up, as the navel point pulls back toward the spine. Inhale to the count of 5, slowly bringing your breath all the way down to the belly. Slowly move your belly outward. As you do this, you are automatically drawing your diaphragm down. Notice how the fingertips begin to open and expand with your inhale. As your diaphragm moves down, it pulls the bottom of your lungs down, thereby pulling air into the bottom of your lungs as a bellows action. Allow your bottom ribs to expand, and then expand the upper ribs to bring air into all of your lungs! Exhale to the count of 7, beginning by allowing the upper body to deflate, slowly emptying the chest and rib cage and then gently pulling your belly back in towards the base of the spine to release any remaining air. This pushes your diaphragm up, and pushes the air out of the bottom of your lungs. Contract your bottom ribs, and then the upper ones for a full exhalation. Do this as slowly and fully as you can comfortably do it. Notice where you feel any tension or contraction in your body. As you breathe consciously relax those areas.In practicing this breath, you would want to do a minimum of 1 minute and a maximum of 3 minutes. Continue for a few moments at your own pace.
