    WARM-UP

    1. Corpse Pose (Savasana)

    Starting position: Dive right into rest today by beginning in Corpse Pose (lying supine on your mat or floor). Take a full minute or two to really center yourself, tune into your breath, and get ready to flow!

    4. Focus on relaxing your face and neck muscles. Close your eyes, completely relax them deeper into your skull, then rotate them down as if to gaze directly at your heart.
    5. Stay here for as long as you’d like, letting your mind enter a meditative state while you progressively relax your muscles.
