Hi, I'm Michael and I'm [inaudible] and we're here for that quickie try ball Matt, or the shorter version. So let's quickly start. Let's quickly start. Let's start standing up. What I want you to do is take the ball, you're just going to place it on the small of your back and just like I'm doing like this, just press it in gently to support your lower back. Then take a nice wide stance from here in that position. Think of just dropping your sits bones down and now send your pubic bone forward and just think of opening up the front of your body. Hold it here.

Just take a couple of breaths. Opening the front line of your body, which you're just opening up your body to those unlimited possibilities of the day or evening and come back straight. Then take the ball. You're going to place it right in the center. From here, you're just going to press the ball in and you're going to cruel up around it. You're going to pull all those unlimited possibilities inside and put them into action. Just stretching the back line of your body. Take a deep breath here and then just exhale. Now, soft few knees and roll yourself up. Then come down onto the mat.

Sit with your legs in a diamond shape. I'm just going to imitate you. You're placed the ball over to your rights. That's right underneath your right hand. From here, what I want you, I'm gonna sit a little bit of angle so you guys can see. So it's here and what I want you to do is just bring the ball up. Inhale. Then on the exhale, curl your tailbone back and just curl back.

Then inhale, bring it to the side and down. Bring the arm over, roll the ball out so you get a nice stretch and come back up and bring the arm down. So we just inhale up. Exhale, contract back. Inhale, police, open, airy on the fide, roll it forward. And imagine I have a floor. Inhale up. Exhale, bring the arm down. So we inhale up, exhale, contractive back. Inhale, come up and open and place it on the side. Exhale over. Good. Just using whatever breath. I don't care about the breath, I care more about the stretch. Bring the arm down. One more time. Just open it up and bring it in.

Come forward, pushing the ball forward. Place it down in the side. Last side bend, just stretching. Try and keep both sitz bones down on the mat and bring it up and bring it down. Then wedge the ball back and behind you. From Mary, grabbing onto the backs of your, just curl your tailbone under.

Curl into the ball and come back up and try and keep your shoulders. Think of your shoulders going forward as your lower back curls in this, you really get the lower back warmed up and stretch last time. Just curl it in and stretch. Come back up. Take the ball, place it right in between your thighs again. Place your hands underneath your thighs. Press down into it.
