exhale walk yourself forward stretching out the spine walk it up and then lie on to your back soles of feet together knees apart and we’re going to rest here if this isn’t comfortable for you just extend the legs out so just resting here for about a minute or less and while you’re here I will read our quote for today this is from Carl Rogers the psychologist might be psychiatrist the curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am then I can change let’s draw the knees into the chest Rock a little bit and then rock yourself up going to do a little pranayama called skull shining breath you can’t think the sun’s good at the moment but just take a nice long breath in through the nose exhale so it’s a passive inhale and the exhale is forced out through the nose inhale and exhale and inhale we’ll begin exhale through the nose quickly inhale and hold the breath drop the chin down lift the belly and sit for a moment and then release it out and then again inhale and exhale another breath in and exhale and then inhale here one more round and go inhale and hold under all that belly and again lift up through all the pelvic floor muscles as you hold here mmm release exhale
