A few reminders...
Please set up your computer (not a mobile device) so you can sit and stand.
The room should be well-lit with no direct light behind you.
The music should be in front and below your computer so you can see it and the screen (without bending down).
I had some problems with students using their mobile phone hot spots, so please use your wifi.
Please print out the PDFs you will receive by email.

2) Place your hands on your lower abdomen;
3) Start to breath, inhaling and exhaling slowly, observing what happens to your tummy (when it rises and when it comes down);
4) Don't do this in front people you don't trust–they may think you are strange! (Well, you may trust them and they will still think you are strange.)

Apolytikion for Palm Sunday
By raising Lazarus from the dead before Thy passion, Thou didst confirm the universal resurrection, O Christ God! Like the children with the branches of victory, we cry out to Thee, O Vanquisher of Death: Hosanna in the highest! Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord!
The Apolytikion (Troparion in the Slavic tradition) is sung before the apolysis (dismissal) at Vespers and summarizes the essence of the feast being celebrated that day.
