How do we release stress? It's not about leaving everything else behind, it's about the appropriate movement of energy through the body, just like the movement of the inahalation and the exhalation. This stress-relieving practice begins with a 30-minute joint-freeing series incorporating simple circular movements of the joints before taking that freedom into a few long holds (bridge with a block and seated forward fold) that then help us to release what we've held onto. Life is about buckling the seat belt and holding on. This stress-reducing practice helps give us the ability to buckle our seat belt and live with a sense of resilience.
