Hi, I'm Amy Newman, Fitness Expert/Creator of The Perfect 10 Workout, and I'm going to show you a type of mudra exercise that you do in Yoga. What you want to do is sit in the easy pose, cross leg; stretch your spine up, relax your shoulders, you can even round them back. Lengthen through the spine and relax. Breathing deep. Then, bring your arms around and behind your back and clasping your fingers. Relax them and slowly roll forward with your buttocks still on the floor. Coming down as low as you can with your forehead. Try to get as close to the ground as you can. Relaxing, breathing. Hold it for about one minute, breathing deeply into your body. "Hmmm", "Hhhhh". After a minute or about there, roll back up, bring your arms back around, stretch up, take in a deep breath, exhale and start again. Take in a deep breath again, "Hmmm", bring your arms behind your back, intertwine the fingers, relax them on your lower spine and reach your forehead forward; trying to keep your buttocks on the mat. Relax your forehead onto the floor if you can reach it. Relax your whole body and breath deeply. Holding this pose for about a minute. "Hmmm", "Hhhhh"; "Hmmm". Then, rolling back up and do it for about five times. In between you can switch your legs if you find that crossing them in one direction is a little painful. Then, you cross the other leg in front and do it. As you lean forward, "Hmmm", exhale, "Hhhhh". Breath deep. Relaxing, releasing. Roll up slowly, release your fingers, bring your arms back, palms open wide in easy pose. I'm Amy Newman and I've shown you some mudra exercises that you can do in Yoga.
