And um, what you'll need is a theraband and you'll need a short box and y'all, let's have fun. Okay, Andre, you can come and stand at the end of your carriage, right standing up nice and tall. Just take a moment to bring the body and mind into this space. We're going to start with two inhaled breathing in and just breathe out.

Just connecting the body and mind together. And one more. Inhale and breathe out. Drawing the abdominals up. We're going to start with a roll down. Inhale on the XL, articulate your spine rolling down, reaching your hands into the age of the carriage. On the inhale, push the carriage away. We run a light spring, so we're on a blue spring per racing that spine a little bit more forward.
