So right hand behind the head, Alright. Left hand comes to the right hand. Simple side body stretch. Good inhale. Excel.

Also, give yourself a little pat on the back for doing so well today. Alright? And then switch it left hand on the head right hand to that left tricep. Feels so good. Also getting to the rib cage here and to his lats. And then slowly roll out their shoulders with return to home. Right? Cross the legs, and you can have them straight out.

You wanna just wanna sit back and relax and enjoy, like I said, the more relaxed your body is, the more relaxed your mind will be hands can be here. Close the eyes, settle in, take a nice easy inhale, and exhale. The locks in your back, locks in your feet, your toes, It's in the hands, the wrist. It's like my meditation teacher taught me. Meditate like you're watching Netflix.

Sit back, relax, and chill. You don't have to have a certain posture. Like I said, the more comfortable where your body is, the more comfortable your mind will be. So, again, give me yourself permission to slow down to be present, allowing your breath to slow down, your heart rate, So all this is a part of the recovery process. It's a long exhales for these final moments.

As you start to bring a little bit of awareness back and maybe wiggling the fingers. The toes, maintaining your head side to side. Stretching out your neck. Coming back to neutral. And when you're ready, your own time is softly, lightly, gently blink the eyes open.

And you made it. That's our class for today. Thank you for joining me. Hopefully, I'll see you soon. Take care. Have a wonderful day.
