This is the basic foundations of any vinyasa class, a great dynamic stretchy flow that gently engages all parts of the body. I recommend doing this daily, in the morning or before any exercise. This video includes various options of intensity, so you can keep it easy or challenge yourself.
Belly Breathing 6 Minutes
Designed to relax the body and mind and to calm the parasympathetic nervous system
