This pose strengthens the back of the body, but the pressure on your abdomen also encourages digestion.
- Lie on your belly with your legs together. Place your arms by your sides with your palms facing up.
- As you inhale, lift your legs, head, and upper body off the floor. Your hands remain on the floor for support.
- As you breathe, relax your shoulders and the muscles in your bum. Extend the crown of your head away from your toes, lengthening as much as you can through your spine.
- Hold for five breaths, and then release back to the mat.
