Students are guided through different neck, shoulder and eye exercises to relieve tension in the body. Then through Proper Breathing techniques known as Pranayama.
The Sun Salutation is also taught which aligns and increases flexibility of the spine. It is also a warm-up routine so that all the muscles are stretched and toned in a proper sequence.
