Five people braved the heat with me today.
One of the benefits of moving your body first thing in the morning is that you are filled with energy and enthusiasm for the rest of your day. You've already taken the time to care for yourself, which means you are more likely to keep the trend going all day. Bringing focus to your breath and body, especially in nature, is a wonderful way to connect to yourself on a deeper level, which cultivates peace of mind.
I often teach breathing exercises during class. Here is one of my favorites :)
Inhale for the count of four
Hold your breath in for the count of four
Exhale for the count of four
Hold your breath out for the count of four
Do this as many times as you like, one breath or 100. You can make your count as long or as short as you'd like, just keep it equal (inhale 5, hold 5 etc)
