We have both found that working with the body can be a useful way to release stress, anxiety or pent up anger. It can help you shift your mood, feel more confident and grounded. Some people feel more energetic after doing exercises and other people feel calmer and more relaxed.
We think it is useful to try things out to see if there is something that works for you. We are all different – what works for one person might not work for someone else. Also we can feel different and have different needs from one day to another. Trying things out and practicing different exercises can help you have a greater sense of choice.
This is a warm up with instructions.
You can adjust anything we do to suit your level, you can have rests and do as much or as little as works best for you on the day.
Short warm up
This is a 5 minute warm up we recommend you do before getting into the punching exercises – unless you’ve done the longer version or you’re already warm.
