This activity is drawn from what the body wants by InterPlay founders Cynthia Winton-Henry and Phil Porter.
Hold perfectly still for 5 slow breaths. Notice what that is like. Take a deep breath and shake it out a little.
Were you holding tension as you held still? Can you maintain stillness without becoming tense?
If you have trouble holding still without tension, stand upright and sway left to right. Let the swaying slow down until you are still. Sometimes moving gently into the stillness can help you find it in a relaxed way.
