Start on your belly. Place both palms under your shoulders, fingers spread wide, pelvis rooted into the mat. Pressing evenly into both palms, lift the chest up and draw the shoulder blades together behind your back. Allow your shoulders to drop down away from your ears to create space between your ears and shoulders. Lift your heart and look forward or slightly up. Take a few breaths and lower slowly back down. Do this for 10-20 minutes.

Starting on your back, bend your right knee and bring it toward the floor on the right side of your body.

If your hip is too tight to reach the foot, use a strap or towel around the foot to be able to reach it. Hold for five to 10 breaths and repeat on the other side.
