- Kneel on your mat with your knees slightly wider that hip-width apart, with your big toes touching behind you. Take a deep breath in, and as you exhale, fold forward. Lengthen your neck and spine by drawing your ribs away from your tailbone and the crown of your head away from your shoulders.
- Rest your arms beside your legs, with palms facing up, or extend the arms out in front of you.
- Stay here for five to 10 breaths.
