“I love how Stephanie explains the benefits of each movement and how the stretches we hold, relate to how we experience life! The idea that we tend to hold our breath when we stretch and how it relates to how we hold our breath in life when things become stressful. Remembering to breathe through it is important in both! Or, how balancing becomes easier when we focus gently on a spot ahead and how in life we tend to lose balance just as easily when we drop our focus! Love the connections! Also, I love the Cactus Arms! This alternative to holding my arms gives me more strength and forces me to open my chest so I don’t feel inclined to scrunch my shoulders! Love it all! 🙂 “
