This first lesson includes an introduction followed by a gentle practice to free your low back and neck.  The postures and sequences are all done laying on your back.  You will find that instead of music the instruction is accompanied by breath sounds.  This is intended to support your own deep breathing.

This second lesson picks up where the first one left off - with you laying on your back with feet wide, knees together and toes pointing forward.  The focus is on freeing up your hips and spine.  The sequences are a great antidote to long hours of sitting at a desk.
Liberate your hips and spine.
10:59
This lesson offers seated poses to free up your shoulders, ribcage, and breathing.  They are demonstrated here sitting on the floor but can also be done in any seated position such as in a chair or on the edge of a bed.  If you do spend many hours working at a desk use these postures to give yourself little breaks - they will help you feel revived and clear. 
Free up your shoulders, ribcage, and breathing.
07:24
Lesson four begins on hands and knees.  This sequence is a great way to develop arm strength and to get upside down promoting healthy circulation.
Strengthen your arms and get upside-down!
06:14
This section first addresses commonly restricted areas in the hips and shoulders.  Then, postures to release and balance the spine lead into a final relaxation.
Moving into relaxation.
19:38
This is the full one hour practice - the combination of lessons one through five available as a continuous flow.  Liberate your body and breath while cultivating a feeling of centeredness and clarity.
