Energy Exercise

Step one
Sit on the floor on your heels. Place your hands flat on your thighs. Flex the spine forward in the pelvic area with the inhale and backward with the exhale. Repeat several times. You do this by rocking on your sitting bones. Repeat three times.

Step two
Sit on the floor with your legs crossed. Grab the ankles with both hands and deeply inhale. Flex the spine forward and lift the chest by rocking on your sitting bones. Repeat three times.

Step three
Sit on the floor with your legs crossed. Grasp the shoulders with fingers in front, and thumbs behind. Inhale and twist to the left; exhale and twist to the right. Breathing is long and deep. Make sure spine is straight. Repeat three times in each direction.

Step four
Sit on the floor with your legs crossed. Lock fingers in a bear grip in front of chest, elbows pointing out to the sides. Elbows move in a see saw motion. Breathe deeply. Relax for one minute.

Step five
Sit on the floor with your legs crossed. Grasp the knees firmly. Keep the elbows straight. Inhale and shrug shoulders (this will begin to flex the upper spine). Exhale and drop shoulders. Rest. Repeat three times.

Step six
Sit on the floor with your legs crossed. Lock fingers in a bear grip at throat level. Inhale. Hold your breath; then squeeze your abdomen and sphincter muscle and push the energy up as though you were pushing a tube of toothpaste. Exhale the energy out of the top of your head, as you raise your arms above your head, holding the same bear grip. Repeat three times.
