We recommend that you do these exercises underneath or in sight of a bodhi tree. If that isn't possible, then visualise a bodhi tree. The energy of the tree strengthens the effect of the exercises.
Freedom, Part 1
a) Place your feet hip-width apart; now alternate between standing on the balls of your feet and back down again. Keep your eyes shut. Firebreathe. 1-3 minutes.
The calf muscles are energetically connected to the lymph glands. These exercises stimulate the pituitary gland.
b) Stand on the balls of your feet. As you breathe in bring up your left knee, and then put it down again as you breathe out, coming back to your starting position. Now breathe in, lift your right knee, and then as you breathe out come back to the starting position again. Direct your gaze to a point on the bodhi tree or a nearby wall. 1-3 minutes per side.
This exercise also works on the pituitary gland; and on the inner ear, which is responsible for your balance.
c) Crouching pose
Place your feet about 50 cm apart, and squat. Hold your arms in front of your chest, insides of your arms pointing forwards, and grasp your ankles. Lift your bottom until your back straightens. Stretch your tongue right out and firebreathe. 1.5-3 minutes.
This exercise is very cleansing. It also regulates the blood pressure in the brain.
Freedom, Part 2
a) Place your feet hip-width apart. Clasp your fingers together and stretch out your forefingers together. Now stretch your arms high above your head, tighten your pelvic floor and bend forwards from the hips as you breathe out; and bend backwards, while still stretching your arms over your head, as you breathe in. 1-3 minutes.
This exercise works the calves and stimulates spiritual growth, (the forefinger represents Jupiter, which is symbolic of growth and wisdom.)
b) Place your feet about 50 cm apart and hold your arms parallel to the ground. Keep your eyes shut and your spine straight during this exercise. Breathe in and turn your upper body to the left, then breathe out and turn to the right. Your arms stay in one straight line. 3-5 minutes.
This exercise strengthens the heart and spine at the level of the chest.
