As you reach forward, arms down to the floor and roll up, up, up, up, up and bend your knees and bring your hips closer towards your soles of your feet. All right, arms out or you can hold underneath and we are going to go spine articulating all the way down and come up and again, exhale as you go down. Inhale and exhale as you come up and you learn.

And now let your gaze work along with your spine as you are calming. Now inhale and next hips. Take your arms up and go all the way back and reach and stretch yourself long. Integrate yourself to the mat. Become one. Remember this space between your waist back of your waist.

Now Flex your feet and reach out of your heels, reaching arms, reaching legs out of the heels, and lower your arms down by your sides. Okay, and now I know I believe in picking up the legs like this. I believe if I'm going to bend the leg into me, I slide it all the way in and then I slide it all the way out before I begin to slide, I think belly button to the spine. And then I slide my leg and my toes touch the floor. And at the same time I am working my foot as I am working my abdominals and I finish with the flex foot. Oh, right now, Ben, one leg into you by sliding all the way. Yeah. And Ben, the other leg into your lever up and that's right.

And now you can place your arms either out to the side or you can praise them in a goalpost right in the T. Okay. And now place your feet back on the floor and slide your legs and flex your feet. Don't Donald Doc on me? That means don't open the feet out. And again, Bend your knees together this times and bring the arms in and hug your knees right and take your elbows are out.

Reach out of your heels once more when your legs into you, slide them and hug the knees, right and take your feet towards the floor. He owns her together and touch the floor belly button into the spine. As I straightened my legs by sliding right, I flex the feet and now to that movement, I am going to add the lifting up of my head. But too often I have heard people say, I tried to be Latisse. I did not like it because it hurt my neck.

Right? And there's no doubt about about it. Many, many of our movements use the hair up in order to use the abdominal snore. Now, first of all, if the the person is weak, if your client is weak, you do not give them the whole repertoire with the bringing up of the head because there's too many movements and it will hurt their head. But one of the very first neck, they will hurt their neck. But one of the first things you must teach them is how do you lift the head and you do not lift the head by the neck, which is what I see much too often. When you want to lift your head, you think, I lower my sternum.

As I look lifts and I look in and I returned down, I sternum goes down as I lift and down, or both arms can be there to help them feel the sternum lowering and the eyes. Remember where the eyes go. The head goes and that goes and spine goes. Doesn't go up there, go straight to where it's goal is, which is left and come back. Okay, so now let's place one hand and our sternum, the other one behind our head, either hand fine and we can have the knees bent and lift up your head. Taking your gaze directly towards your belly button, right lowering the sternum and put it down again and again. Lift up your head, no tension in the neck and put it down again and last one and lift up the head. No tension in the neck.

The jaw goes directly down, don't, but they still every member this year too to have air and down. Okay, good. I also believe that when you bro Hug your legs or use your arms, you do not do this. Like you want to engage your side, you want to engage your arms to do that. You look at this, this is weak. This is not doing anything that okay.
