This Eden Energy Medicine exercise can be a great stretch too. Stand with your back straight and your feet shoulder length apart, rub the palms of your hands vigorously, shake them off and place them on the tops of your thighs. Take a deep breath. Now bring your hands into a prayer position in front of your heart and, with an inhale, raise one hand up above your head with the palm up facing up and stretch the other hand down to the ground with the palm facing down. Look up to your raised hand and hold your breath. Really get into the stretch and feel yourself connecting to the heavens and taking in that energy and then looking downward (you can exhale here if you like) feel yourself grounded to the earth soaking up its strength. Then you bring your hands back into the heart prayer position with the intention that you are bringing both heaven and earth energy into your body and connecting it.
Repeat the process on each side 3-4 times. On your last exhale, bend at the waist, allowing your upper body to hang and your hands to dangle by your feet. When you feel ready, begin to move your arms in figure-8 motions as you slowly come back to standing position.
