What it works: back
- Lie flat on your stomach, pressing your belly button into the floor. Bend your knees and reach for the outside edge of your right ankle and then your left.
- Once you have a firm hold of each ankle, try to keep your toes together, either pointing or flexing your feet. Inhale to lift your feet and thighs up as high as you can, and shift your weight forward so that you're resting on your navel instead of on your pubic bone.
- Hold Bow Pose for five deep breaths.
