Hi, I'm Amy Newman, fitness expert for Gold's Gym and creator of The Perfect 10 Workout and I'm going to show you some yoga closing exercises. When you're closing your yoga exercises you're warmed up already so we're going to be in a straddle, going to start us off in a straddle sitting up nice and tall and we're going to slowly exhale as we reach over, inhale lifting up, exhaling reaching over the other side, looking underneath the arm, neck is long, engage through the fingertips, reach exhaling, inhale, lift up. Bring the soles of your feet in together, reach for the tips of your toes, pressing your knees down. Lift up the back of your spine then lift your chin up take in a deep breath, tuck your tail bone under rounding out bringing your forehead towards your toes. Elbows in front of your legs, knees pressed down. You want to hold this pose and relax and release your neck and spine and then just let go as though you just fell asleep. Then after you've relaxed for a little bit stretch your arms out, come up inhale, bring your arms around, knees come together, lay down in Corpse Pose. Take in a deep breath, stretch, exhale, relax and just let your body hang in a very relaxed form. Open up your legs, kind of shake it out a little bit, get as comfortable and then you want to just let go. Let go of all thoughts. Let go of all tension and let your breath naturally come in and out. Visualizing light and listening to your breathing. Try not to let anything come into your mind. After you've laid there for about five minutes, roll onto your side, your right side in the fetal position, slowly come up and sit in your cross leg easy pose to finish out your yoga exercises and just relax, meditating on positive thoughts. Namaste. I'm Amy Newman. Thanks for joining me as I show you some yoga closing exercises.
