Let's get started.

(soft relaxing music) All right, let's begin seated.

Take a seat on somethingcomfortable, or uncomfortable.

I'm using a block, but have a seat, sit up straight and tall, bring awareness to your posture.

Most of the day, we spendunaware of our posture, and through yoga practice,we start to become more aware of the posture, and how the body canrelieve itself of pain by how we hold ourselves.

So, start by bringing your awareness to your lower back and your pelvis.

Bring the back of the pelvis in and up so that the spine can go upward, but the shoulders release back.

Turn your hands onto yourthighs, palms facing up.

Close your eyes andconnect to your breath.

So, yoga's a breathing practice.

You wanna practice nose breathing.

Breathe steady, in andout through your nose.

Feel the lungs expand as you breathe in, and feel the lungs deflateas you breathe out.

Just take two more conscious breaths.

Good, then open your eyes,but keep your focus inward.

Twist to your right.

Put your right hand behind you, left hand to the outside of your knee.

Grow the spine tall as you're twisting.

Come back to centerand twist to your left.

Inhale, breathe, the spine upright.

Lift through the back of thepelvis to your lower back.

Come back to center.

Change the cross of your legs.

Twist to your right,grow tall as you twist.

Twist to your left, situp tall as you twist.

Come back to center.

Now, interlock your fingers, turn your palms to face inside-out.

Raise your arms up,but as your arms go up, you'll feel it, because theback muscles aren't very strong, and the shoulders are tight,that you wanna sink back.

Instead, take the spine in and up and stretch up through thehands, open up your shoulders.

Bring your hands backdown, change the interlock.

Take the other index finger on top, turn your palms inside-out.

Lift through the chest, go forward and up as you stretch your arms.

Break up the tension in the shoulders, turn the thumbs up towards the ceiling, and firm your elbows in.

Let your inner arm bones drop down.

Bring your arms back down.

Good, then come on toyour hands and your knees.

Place your hands rightunderneath your shoulders, place your knees underneath your hips.

As you inhale, take yourspine into a back bend, tip your sit bones up to the ceiling, will your chest through.

Then, exhale.

From the pelvis, tuck under, round through your lowerback, middle back, upper back.

Look back at your navel.

Inhale, arch your back, and exhale, round out.

So, sit with your legs stretchedout in front of you, and practice sitting up tall.

For most people, to tryto straighten the legs, if you haven't practiced much yoga, the back body will wannapull back and under if you try to straighten your legs, so I want you to bend yourknees just a little bit and practice lifting upthrough the back of your spine.

All right, great job, so,take this time in corpse pose to relax, let all the poses, all the strengtheningand stretching you did acclimate to the body, so the body can receivethe benefits from it.

Just relax and breathe through your nose.

Practice watching your breath.

Then, gently bend your knees and roll over to your right side.

Press yourself up to seated.

So, with your legs crossed, just like we did atthe beginning of class, bring the palms together.

Close your eyes, and just notice the shift that you feel after you practice yoga.

Feel your body, notice how the body feels, notice the quality of the breath, and also observe the shiftin the mental quality and how your mind feels,your current mental state.
