IF after staying in the above relaxed state for a good minute or two, you are able to go further comfortably, let your body lean forward. Let it stop you where you naturally stop – do not reach for your ankles or PULL anything forward. Let yourself DROP into relaxation. When you are fully relaxed and aware of all the areas of your body that are slowly stretching out, lean a few inches to the left SLOWLY and then a few inches to the right, back and forth gently, observing the change in stretch as you move.When you are done. let you body drift back to centre – where this picture illustrates – and without lifting your head or straightening your back, let your hands gently push you back so your shoulders are over your hips, but your back is still relaxed, as in picture #2 above. THEN roll straight up through your spine, roll your shoulders and arms back, pressing through the shoulder blades, and relax.
