Two children stretch their arms and stand face to face holding their hand palms to each other. They push to move the other child from its position. The one who first makes a step looses.

To get strength and also to learn to adapt to the other person's pull and energy.

Variation: Instead of pushing, pull!

Stand like a tree and move your arms simultaneously waving up above your head and down again. Imagine that your arms are branches with leaves catching wind energy.

This exercise is to stretch your body but also a beginner's exercise to learn to take in good energies from nature.
