Starting in a seated pose as you center with a deep diaphragmatic breath, toning the vagus nerve. Using the camel breath to connect and open the thoracic region. Warming up with exercises for the vagus nerve, double chin, and balance of the vestibular system. Lots of shoulder stretches are incorporated also shoulder strengthening poses. Isolating shoulder blade retraction and protraction. Core, hips, butt all get a balanced and integral toning. A belt breathing exercise is incorporated to teach a powerful opening in the belly. Guided relaxation... This class is especially nice morning or mid-day when you have the most energy.
