Thanks, Alana. This was a nice, gentle practice to start my morning. You managed to pack a lot into 30 minutes. I liked the shoulder opener and the cat/cow stretches as I was feeling tight this morning.

One question-- What does "widening from the base of your skull" mean? You said this a few times and I have a hard time understanding what this should feel like.

Hi Ted, Great question. You might try these cues to find the action:

1. Reach your head far forward, like a turtle.
2. Then find the opposite action - draw your head back and the chin down slightly.
3. Relax your face, jaw, neck and shoulders.
4. Imagine you're a kitten being gently lifted by the nape of your neck by mama cat.
5. This is a subtle form of Jalandhara Bandha, the chin lock. Let me know how it goes.

Thanks for asking! Alana

This session offered a wonderful balance, Alana.
