Lie on the floor on your stomach. Keep your legs straight. Point your toes. Place your hands next to your chest on the floor. Inhale and keep your hands lightly on the floor. Lift your head, shoulders and upper back. Squeeze your buttocks and engage your core to help support your back. Hold for five breaths. Then exhale and bring your body back down to the floor. Repeat.
If you have injuries or if you're concerned about exercising, consult with your health care provider before starting a yoga program.
