Mountain, Forward Fold, and Halfway Lift
Start with this Sun Salutation A series "to warm the body up, elevate the heart and breathing rates, and to warm up the bigger muscles of the body including the core, chest, and leg muscles," Julie said. Begin standing in Mountain Pose with the feet touching and stretch the arms to the ceiling (left photo).
With a straight back, hinge forward from the hips and swan dive to a forward fold (middle photo). Lengthen the lower back to stretch the back and the back of legs to the halfway lift position (right photo).
