Before you begin...
- The purpose of each video is to introduce you to the posture. Once familiar you can practice alongside the video, pausing when needed, or practice in your own time. We encourage you to begin with 2 minutes and progress in intervals of 5 minutes.
- As you hold the posture the discomfort eases until there is only warmth. If the sensation of the exercise is too uncomfortable, begin with a layer of thin clothing on the first few sessions (a thermal top is perfect) until you are comfortable practicing against bare skin.
- Progress slowly, repeating the exercise daily until you are comfortable. Only then do we recommend advancing to the next difficulty.

Well done for completing the first round of classes! You should feel comfortable in each of the postures and be ready to progress into some more sensitive areas. Focusing on your breathing is extremely important here as it will help with relaxing into the posture. Picture yourself relaxing into each posture more with each exhale. With a bit of practice you will find how incredible our bodies are at adapting to stimulation.
