Yoga instructor and NASM-certified trainer Liz Galloway recommended this simple, classic pose because of the lower-back and spinal release it provides. It opens up your whole body and is a "great slow wake-up position," Liz said.
- Begin in a high plank position with your shoulders over your wrists.
- Inhale a breath as you scoop your chest forward, balancing on the tops of your feet and your hands, coming into Upward-Facing Dog. Lower your head back between your shoulder blades. Pull your shoulder blades down your back and hold for five breaths.
