And now let’s have a look how she teaches me in a classroom. Bring it back, up and forward. Inhale up and exhale back down. Noticing any stiffness in the hips, your lower back and just observe. It’s not to judge, it’s not to be angry or frustrated about anything just noticing. As your body feel shake feel all the bones relaxed, muscles relaxed. As you do that feel the support from the Earth. Tail bone reaching down, crown reaching up. and let’s now turn from side to side and let you arms just weak. So as we do that this is also Tai Chi Qi Gong warming up, very traditional. You’re stimulating the bladder, the kidney here meridians, the lower organs as you tuck your hands into lower abdomen and the lower back. Let your hands float even higher to stimulate your liver meridian very gently just letting your hands tuck into your body. Fingers relaxed, wrists relaxed. And then let your hands float even higher where we’re stimulating the heart and lung meridians. It’s such a nice simple thing, but it’s so effective, so nice, you can share with all your loved ones. and do it anytime. It energizes and connects you. Pose here for a few breaths. Just feel the sense of vitality and energy in your entire body. Don’t loose the connection of the point, raising from the top of your head to the sky and tail rooting down towards the Earth. Reach your arms up. Tuck your fingers towards each other, palms down. And then very gently let your arms sink slowly as if you’re doing in water very slowly Imagine you’re holding a ball in front of your belly As you inhale turn your palms away from each other as if you’re pushing the sky and the earth away from each other and look towards your right hand. As you exhale release your palms towards each other as you’re condensing this ball again. As you inhale, change, so you’re pushing the Earth and the sky away, open your side body here. Back to the center. Pressing into your feet. It helps to open energy channels in your legs. As you inhale press into your feet come back up. And exhale to the left. Inhale back to the center. Fold the index fingers and the palms up. Inhale. Press the ceiling with your palms and push your heels up. Steady breath. Look at a point in front of your horizon or in the ground Inhale. Reach the right arm up and as you exhale bend towards the left. Inhale, come back up, so flow 3 times. And then as you exhale bend to the left. Here you open your right lung and your right hip. Bring your right hand to the bottom of your right lung. Take a deep breath into the left hand and to the bottom of your right lung. As you exhale, bend opening the left heel and the left lung. As you inhale come back up. And as you exhale bend. Stay here for 3 breaths. Bring your right hand to the bottom of your left lung. Now close your arms as you’re taking a shirt off and as you inhale put your arms over your head. This is called “Circulating clouds”. Inhale come back to the center and exhale turn left. Inhale back to the center and exhale slowly to the right. One more inhale back to the center and exhale to the left. Come back to the center. So inhale, reach your arms to the sides, middle fingers reaching away from each other and as you exhale bring your left hand to your left. Inhale, reach your right arm up. Exhale up. Inhale, really opening and stretching the intercostal muscles around the ribs. One more as you inhale come back up. Stay here for 2 or 3 breaths. As you exhale bend your right arm, turn your right palm up, bring the forearm onto the right thigh and the left arm circles down towards the front of the room and then goes again to a big circle. Bring your left arm up. Back, down and forward. One more time. Turn your chest and your belly up towards the sky, keeping the belly and the chest up. Now let your left arm stay over the head pointing towards the front of the room. 3 breaths here. Roll your shoulders away from your ears. Chin tucked in. Take a resting breath here. And then the left hand onto the bottom of your right lung. As you inhale reach your left arm up, spin the spine to the left and again turning the chest out towards the floor. Inhale, spiraling the spine. And again. Chest towards the floor and then towards the left. Chin in, so the back of your neck is nice and long. Nice. As you inhale, open your arms to the sides and as you exhale, bend to the left, bring your right arm up and forward. Chest and belly turned up towards the sky. One more breath.
