Start with your spine in a “neutral” or long position, then gently lift your heart and tailbone so your back gently curves downward. Be sure to focus on the lifting – do not press your back downward. Let the curve happen naturally.
Press through your hands moving your chest gently toward your thighs and your heels gently toward the floor.
Point your toes so the tops of you feet are on the mat. Keep your neck relaxed and long and quads tight as you hold and breathe.
