Better mental health starts with Headspace

(tranquil music) Breathing awareness. Sit up straight, and place your hands over your ribs. Feel that expansion. Taking your time to be present right here in this moment, to feel that breath go in through your nose, down your throat, past your chest, into your diaphragm. Great job. World's greatest stretch. in kneeling position, step one leg forward. Bring your elbow into that inset. Raise your back knee off the ground and breathe into your stretch. Place your back knee on the ground. Seat those hips down and back and get a really good stretch in the back of that leg. Return back up into plank position and switch legs, bringing the same elbow down into the instep, trying to get it as low to the ground as possible. Lower that knee down and sit back for the hamstring stretch. Nice job. And return back to neutral. Pigeon pose. Starting on the mat, swing one leg behind you and then the other leg beneath you in front. Keep the chest over your front knee, and you're gonna do this for five cycles of breath. Make sure you're breathing while performing the exercise. In through the nose, out through the mouth. Great. Let's switch sides. One leg in front of you, bent and one leg directly behind you. Keeping that chest up, breathing in through your nose, out through your mouth for five cycles of breath. Breathe deep into that stretch, sitting down lower and lower each time. Almost finished. Figure four. Lay on your back on the mat. Place your ankle on the opposite knee and draw that knee towards your chest. Make sure your lower back is always in contact with the ground and you're breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth, as you're pulling your knee towards you. Great. Now switch sides. Place your ankle on the opposite knee, draw your knee towards your chest. Make sure there's no space between the ground and your lower back. In through your nose and out through your mouth as you stretch, keep going. Nice, now relax. I hope you're feeling just a little clearer and calmer than when we started. I'm Kim and I hope to see you back here very soon....
