legs so expect to wake up and feel a little bit stiff in the morning but remember to keep moving okay we’re going to get started but if you like what you see today please like and subscribe to telethia okay I’d like us to start standing and we’re going to start with a little bit of Pilates focus before we begin to the deep yoga section I’d like you to think about how you’re standing and think about a posture before you begin anything else so whatever you’ve just been doing in your day you kind of draw a line under that and feel the ground beneath your feet and connect to the earth feel completely supported through the feet and feel the weight forward in the toes and back in the heels feel its side and side and feel totally grounded now working up your body just to check how your are today join your eye muscles up to your hips pull your lower belly in and lift your pelvic floor and that should automatically give you a little bit of a energy lift you know a little bit of a little energy left so lift all that in pull your waist in and imagine if you’ve got the corset on it doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman you still can imagine what it’s like oh maybe through experience but that’s your business pull the course it really tight pulling really really really really really tight and then release about 50% and I’d like you to keep that muscle tone permanently in your core so I’d like us to spend a little time on our shoulders on our neck just loosen everything up we construct as much as we like in our body but our neck really needs to be looked after so roll your shoulders and roll forward and this might seem a little bit gentle but don’t worry it’s a little hard work to come shoulders away from your ears and then take a look over your shoulder to the center take a look over your shoulder to the center and drop your chin toward your chest don’t round your shoulders as you bring your chin to your chest bring your chest your chin and feel how that stretches through the back of the neck and bring your chin to the ceiling a little bit like pushing the chin to the ceiling so giving it an extra lift and then looking ahead take your ear to your shoulder and to the center take your ear to your shoulder and come back to the center okay so next or nicely looked after breathing in through your nose and I’d like you to breathe out through your
