Hello, hello. This is Jason Williams here with Pilates Anytime. Welcome to Vital Restoration. This class is called Root to Crown. So this is our all encompassing class from those previous seven classes or seven weeks.

You're really gonna like this. We'll start with a nice meditation, we'll flow and then we'll end with a nice chakra balancing meditation at the end for some reiki, okay? So go ahead, find your nice, comfortable seat. All you need is your mat. Again, your legs can be crossed or uncrossed.

Again, be comfortable for you and your body here, okay? So if your hips don't like this, you can straighten them out, however you like. Or sit up on your mat or a block or however you like. So begin to close the eyes. And just bring your awareness to your body here.

Notice your body as you're seated in this position. Notice how your body just feels. Notice any maybe tight points or anything that's sore. And just know that it's temporary. Again, no need to judge anything that's going on with your body but we're just noticing these things.

So maybe noticing your lower back, your neck, your shoulders, your feet, your ankles, your hands. Find a place where you can soften just a little bit. And feel free to get any movements or kinks out here. So if you need to kind of wiggle your body side to side, maybe bend your head left to right. Just to get the wiggles out, the kinks out.

And then come to a little bit of stillness and bring your awareness to your breath. Just notice your breath, notice the inhales and the exhales. And this may be the first time you're noticing your breath today, this week. Again, no need to judge, we're just noticing. Take a nice, easy inhale through your nose.

(inhaling) Easy exhale out the mouth. (exhaling) Good, nice and easy inhale and easy exhale. (exhaling) One more time, breathing in and out. Now bring the awareness to your hips and feel that alignment start to really pull your body up nice and straight from your hips to your belly, to your sternum, to your chest, your neck, your head, and just feel that alignment all the way up to the sky. Thinking about your posture.

We'll beginning our class with a reiki mantra. And I'll speak it in Japanese and then English. (foreign language) Trust for today, do not worry, do not anger, be grateful, work hard, be kind to others. Then you'll softly, gently, lightly blink your eyes open. Good.

And we'll start with some nice easy neck rolls and head stretches. So tuck your chin down to your chest and slowly pull one ear over, your right ear, to the right shoulder and do these nice, easy head rolls. Circle down around, just warming up through the neck, preparing to move. Feels good to kind of ease into our practice with these stretches. Good.

One more time around, and then you'll reverse that circle or neck roll in the opposite direction. So come here to the center, reverse it. Left ear to the left shoulder, looking up towards the sky, down and around. Again, a nice stretch through your neck and traps. Good.

Feels good. Working out the kinks in the neck and the shoulders and the traps. And then one more time around. And then you'll come down to center with that chin here, and then slowly lift the head up. Right hand comes to the left knee, nice and easy spinal twist.

Looking to the left, inhale, exhale (exhaling) and then look into the right, spinning around. Left hand to the right knee. Nice, easy spinal twist. Get that mid back, that thoracic spine. And then back around, right hand to the left knee.

So hands behind the head, bring that top leg over. I'm grabbing at the ankle or the shin here. Bottom legs gonna float up and down. So nice, easy kicks here. All right.

Flexing the toe. Good. So when I work in that inner thigh, good, four, three, two, one, hold, point the toe, circle it out. Good. Stacking, you have a hand here or both hands behind the head here.

All right, looks good. Three, two, reverse, opposite way. Looks good. Awesome. Three, two, one and relax.

Nice. Switching sides. Okay. Snake and twist. So set it up.

Shoulder stacks over the elbow. Same thing you did on the previous side. Lift it up, set it up. Top hand is gonna come underneath. Good, inhale here, exhale.

Good. Inhale and exhale. Awesome. So we're going through those obliques a little core, right? Well done.

Breathe. Take your time. Get an option to always drop that knee or float that leg, do you. Last one. Inhale, good, and exhale.

Good. Drop it down for inner thigh. Good. Come all the way down. Maybe hands behind the head here.

Looks wonderful. Breathe, feels good, the move. Be present. Reverse opposite way with that circle. Good.

Nice. Four, three, two, and one, relaxing. Nice job. Stretch out the legs, come up to a seated position so you can fold the legs and here, okay. Sit up nice and tall through these sit bones, we're gonna do some head and neck stretches.

So I'm gonna extend my right hand out to the fingertips, taking my left hand, bring it to the side of the head here on the right side. Nice, easy side bend to get a stretch through my traps down to shoulder, to the entire arm here. So I'm walking out to this fingertips here and this, hold here and apply as much pressure as you need. Not too much, right? So nice, gentle pull.

You can close your eyes and feel that stretch. Nice. Working out some of the tension and stress. And you can now even pivot your head down in a way, looking towards my left knee or away from that arm that's out. And then you're moving the head.

So kind of palpate around to the back of the head and really feel that stretch now kind of to the back of the traps or your upper traps and back of your neck here, right? You can even move your head side to side a little bit. It's really get that nice stretch. Good. Awesome.

And then slowly reach it back up. Release, switch sides, left fingertips out, right hand comes up, left side ahead. Nice, easy bend, light, gentle pull, walk those fingertips out to get that stretch down the arm, the shoulders and traps. You can close the eyes here, breathe, exhale, and there maybe turning that chin down in a way. Maybe moving the head, hand to the back of the head here.

Really feeling that upper trap, that neck, you can move the head side to side, looking down. Nice stretch. Good, awesome work. Breathe. And then kind of releasing from there and taking the index finger and middle finger, maybe your ring finger and just do a nice, easy jaw massage here, just to kind of loosen up the jaw and the muscles of the face.

Slow, we did this in a prior class. So here just doing these small circles around the jaw, letting your jaw hang, close the eyes. So we forget our jaw and face gets tight all week from talking, just being present and being present with other people. So we have to allow these muscles to relax. Good.

Again, drawing the circles around the jaw. You can move up now to the side of head, maybe into the temples here. If you wanna do small circles here, kind of feel around palpitate, alright? And notice what your body needs here. Good.

It's good, that nice massage giving yourself that soft love, that self care, right? It's our heart chakra, that nurturing. Good. And then slowly releasing from there. And you can go out, jaw out a little bit, relax your eyes, your face, and we'll begin our chakra balancing.

So bring your hands back to that prayer center with a little bit of space in between the palms here. So just the fingertips are touching. So now that's our focal point is that center in between the palms. Unless you've started to feel the heat or energy or that static electricity or feel a little bit warmer than just warmth. You'll feel maybe a little bit hot or heat and you can always rub the hands, you can do a little circles here, kinda pivot, you kinda start feeling that energy, that heat, and again, don't worry if you don't feel it.

Know that it's working and we'll start by bringing both hands to our hips here. This is our grounding, root chakra here. Sort of send that energy, that healing energy to the hips, to be stable, to be grounded. Take it back to the base of the spine for stability, and then taking your right hand, bringing it to your belly or just below your belly here. So your palm comes here again, feeling that energy, that heat there and our sacral chakra, that's our creativity.

Sensuality. So restores some emotion, and then taking your left hand, that's on your hip, bringing that to your celiac plexus or right to the sternum, center of your body. And that palm is right there in the center. That's our willpower, right? Who we know we are integrity, what we stand for.

And now taking that right hand, that's the belly moving up to your heart or to center your chest here. Through your heart chakra that self-love, the kindness that we give ourselves and to each other, forgiveness, forgiving ourselves, forgiving others. They're lying here and now taking that left hand, bringing it just the front of the throat here. You don't have to necessarily grab the neck or anything, but just feeling the palm and the heat and the energy in front of the throat, which is our communication. Our speaking, how we speak to ourselves, how we speak to each other, saying what needs to be said, when it needs to be said.

Sometimes it gets plopped and we hold on to things. And we don't speak our truth, which may come from our celiac plexus, our willpower. Speaking our love or energy, our creativity, speaking when our boundaries from our hip chakra, when to say yes, when to say no. And then taking that hand, that's on your heart and at the chest, right hand moving just the front of your forehead here. Maybe between the eyes, you bring your left hand down now.

So this is our third eye chakra or intuition. So intuition, knowing what our body needs be able to see around the corner. Also that gut feeling we get when we need to make decisions, trusting our intuition. And then taking your left hand bringing it right above the head, or even you can touch the top of the head and you move your right hand down. So the palm is just resting here for our crown chakra.

Our higher selves. Maybe you're a higher purpose while we're here. So try and seeking that. So if we're in line and all the other chakras, it helps the find that a little bit easier. When things begin to align, when we know our higher purpose.

Lemme do things for you and for others, looking outside yourself and then bringing that hand down and just feeling. So hands to your lap or to the knees, feel your body, feel the alignment everybody. Maybe it feels down a little bit lighter, a little more at ease. Maybe a little sense of strength will soften. Maybe a sense of floating.

Take a nice, easy inhale, and easy exhale. One last easy inhale, and easy exhale. I'll end with our mantra that we began with. First in Japanese and then in English (foreign language) Just for today, do not worry, do not anger, be grateful, work hard, be kind to others. Dropping your chin down to your chest.

So you're looking down and as I count down from 10 you open your eyes slowly. See you are the first person you see, 10, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, and one. Amazing, thank you. Thank you for joining me. Hopefully you enjoyed this class and I'll see you next time.

Loved this.  Such a great end to my day.  I feel stretched and energized.  More of these p,ease.  Really enjoyed the mantra and meditation at the beginning and end.
