Warm Up & Mobility

What will this movement help with?

  • Relaxing our body and mind
  • Steadying our breathing
  • Reflecting on the movements we’ve just done
  • Thinking about what we might do next, whether it’s more movement or something else entirely

Muscles worked

  • Full body relaxation


We’re coming down to the floor for this one so you may want a mat, a towel or even a jumper to lie on


On The Floor

Step 1

Kneel on the floor with your knees just wider than hip width apart (or a comfortable distance for you)

Step 2

Sit back onto your heels. Option one is to sit your bum on your heels, option two is to just hover above (wherever is most comfortable)

Step 3

Stretch both hands out in front of you. You don’t want to feel a stretch, just to find a position that feels good for you

Step 4

Rest your head on the ground

Step 5

Holding for 30 seconds, or longer if you want, take big, deep breaths in through your nose for a count of 3 seconds and then out through your mouth for a count of 3 seconds. Feel free to make as much noise with your breathing as you want

Step 6

If this isn’t a comfortable position for you, feel free to do the breathing movement in a sitting position of your choice.
