  • Partner Tree – Allow your friends help support you.
  • Warrior I – Feel the support that your legs and torso can give you.
  • Warrior II – Notice in your body how strong you feel.
  • Mountain Pose – Stand confident and tall.
  • Chair Pose – Focus on your feet feeling grounded and feel the strength in your body as you hold the pose. Hold for 20 seconds.
  • Mountain Pose – Stand confident and tall.
  • Repeat – Then do everything from Warrior through Mountain Pose again with the other side.
  • Archetype Game – moving in rhythm with music or a drum.


  • Forward Fold – Hang your head down and feel the stretch getting deeper and deeper as you hang. Feel it in your back and your hips too. Notice the calm that comes from this stretch.
