Move Targets: Total body


Step-By-Step:

Step 1: From a standing position, bring the feet together or hip width apart, parallel. Lift up the toes, spread them wide and place them back on the floor. Feel your weight evenly balanced through the bottom of each foot, not leaning forward or back.

Step 2:  Inhale and lift out of the waist, pressing the crown of the head up towards the ceiling, feeling the spine long and straight.

Step 3: Exhale and drop the shoulders down and back as you reach the fingertips towards the floor. Gently press the chest / sternum towards the front of the room.

Step 4: Continuing to reach out through the fingers, inhale the arms up, turning the palms shoulder height, bringing the arms into a H position.
