Wake Up Streching and Loosening (ready for the day)

1.Sit on the floor with your legs crossed,back straight and shoulders and neck relaxed. If you are uncomfortable,place a cushion under your hips to them slightly. Place your fingertips lightly on the floor about 30cm (1ft) away from your hips. Inhale for five counts.

Without moving your shoulders, breathe in and raise your palm together above your head,keeping your shoulders stable. Feel a stretch from your hip all the way up to your fingertips. Be careful not to push your neck forward. Hold for a count of five and lower your arms. Repeat five times.
Breathe in, lifting your arms in front of you level with your shoulders.Bring your palms together, breathe out,drop your chin to your chest and hold for a count of five. Lift your head and breathe in, opening your arms out to the sides and behind you as you count to five. Breathe out and slowly lower your arms. Repeat five times.
Breathe in and lift your arms out to the sides, in line with your shoulders. Breathe out and twist to the right. Twist from your hips, turning your entire upper body, and look toward your right hand. Hold for a count of five as you breathe out. Inhale and come back to the middle, then repeat the twist to your left. Repeat five times.
