What better way to begin a new year but with Hope?
Begin with prayer, take three good breaths.
Move into Prayer Breathing, take three good breaths with intention and focus.
Move hands from the heart outward feeling the lengthening of your biceps and upper back as you reach forward slightly. Reach outward and widen your arms. Bring your arms out to either side. Keeping shoulders down and relaxed stretch arms out to either side feeling the stretch through the fingertips. Make your reach wide, Hope is big! Breathe here, three good breaths.
Release arms and bring back to prayer position at the heart. Repeat this sequence.
