So here's the practice:
1. Stop what you're doing and breath in through your nose while you reach your arms up over your head. Keep breathing and stretch one hand to the ceiling and then the other. Move slowly and pay attention to the sensations of breath and movement.
2. Place your hands on the counter, wall or desk. Walk your feet back until you create an L with your body. Let your chest move towards the floor and breathe into your shoulders and across your upper chest. Begin to let your exhale be longer than your inhale.
3. Stand nice and tall. Send one leg back into a high lunge. Hands at hips or arms over head. Breathe here. Find both strength and ease. Do both sides.
A meditation teacher once told me not to underestimate the power of 5 minutes. Bring your practice off the mat and into your daily life. See how you feel.
