This standing warm up is part of a full-length workout shot in the yard of a villa at Waka Ganga Resort in Bali, Indonesia. It is meant to be both a calming and challenging warm-up focusing on the principles of breath and relaxation. All too often our fast paced lives, toxic environments, jobs, and interactions with technology (ironic, I know), leave us short-of-breath, full of tension, and poor postural habits. Slowing down to pay attention to our BREATH can help refuel our bodies. Breathing deeply is like taking an internal shower to detoxify the body.
