I would like to share the following Chinese 9 Treasure Exercises with you and hope that you will

include them in your daily routine! ( You may even perform these in front of your desk!)

1. Standing: Begin with small heel kicks toward the butt- you may do these anytime to shake out the legs.

3.Then make LARGER hip circles with wider legs and hands on hip bones.

4. Neck Circles and roll the eyeballs too!

5. Shoulder Circles- one at a time- both directions.

6. Elbow circles
