What it tones: shoulders, upper back, and abs
How to do it:
- Begin in Downward Facing Dog. Spread your fingers wide, and lower your forearms to the mat. Check to make sure you're creating a straight line between your elbows and middle fingers.
- Try to straighten your legs and lower your heels toward the floor, flaring your heels slightly wider than your toes so the outside edges of your feet are parallel with the outside edges of the mat.
- Relax your head between your arms, and direct your gaze through your legs or up toward your belly button.
- Hold Quarter Dog for five breaths.
