Thanx! It is very hard for me too. And I can see her! Lol. Oh and did I tell you - you just keep your mouth shut when you need a new breath - you just suck air in through your nose.
The other thing is - like on the side stretch - you don't come out of the posture. You just go deeper into the posture. But when you're on your back on the floor doing the scissors, in between breaths when you're sucking air in through your nose, you put your feet back on the floor because otherwise you can't roll your stomach up.
Sounds complicated even to me. Let me know how it goes.
Wow! I don't know if I could do it without watching her do it. I may have to give it a try and see if I can keep rolling one after the other. Sounds hard if you aren't used to doing it. Keep it up Rosalie!
Taking a deep breath......

I finally got it!!! And I LOVE it! It's a little tricky. It's only for experienced BodyFlexers. You are supposed to "roll one BodyFlex breath into the next". Let me see if I can explain it. Blow your breath out, then, breathe in, then do the Pah exhale breath, hold your breath and bring up your tummy - so far so normal. Do the exercise. Still normal.
Then, here's the change: instead of gasping for air, just go straight into breathing in through the nose. And go on with the big Pah exhale breath and keep on going. For each exercise stretch a little more . I've only done it once and I felt really out of breath. But I'm sure it will get easier.
I'm lucky that one of our tv's has a vcr player. I just ordered Greer's Advanced BodyFlex. It was only a couple of bucks used on Amazon. Does anyone have it? I'll let you know about it when it arrives.
