Certified instructor description:
A stretch and relaxation program with a special focus on speeding the recovery from chronic diseases (but anyone with a stressed-out life could benefit from these soothing techniques). The first segment is a guided relaxation that's designed to reduce tension — one body part at a time (“feel the peacefulness spreading to your arms...”). The next two sections feature self-massage, breath and stretching activities. They range from simple facial massages to fitness-style shoulder rolls. The final segment is a guided meditation that's accompanied by tranquil outdoor scenery (e.g. flowers, trees, streams, meadows). As Mary Ann Wilson wisely says during that sequence, “sometimes it's the simple things that refresh us the most.” Quiet music. ©2011.
