71 Lungs lungs lungs

Video number 71 (15 minutes)

Standing all the way through (or sitting if preferred) we breathe into every bit of our lungs and increase our lung capacity together. We'll oxygenate and rid ourselves of what we don't need and revitalise the good.  You'll lengthen and release your whole body, too.  Suitable and vital for all.

72 The Wonder of the Chair for the shoulders

Video number 72 (20 minutes)

72 Sitting tall throughout.  Our shoulders want to relax.  They need to be strong, mobile and toned, too, so they can work beautifully but also relax over our tall strong body.  This session will place, release, balance and tone the shoulders, while we move without stress. We release, place, balance and align.
