Your Balanced Workout is over — time to relax and enjoy how great your workout has made you feel. As you do this last cool-down exercise, feel the gentle rise and fall of your breath. In yoga, transitions are always important. During this exercise, see if you can make a smooth transition from exercising to whatever activity you want to do next.

You need ankle weights for this exercise, but don't put them on. Follow these steps:

1. Lie on your back with your ankle weights resting on your diaphragm (see Figure 7-14).

The weight is to make you aware of your breathing.

2. Take in eight to ten Balancing Breaths.

Taking Balancing Breaths is a great way to relax (for more detail, see Chapter 4).
