Keeps spine mobile

  • Begin on your hands and knees, knees under hips, hands under shoulders.
  • Round your back up toward the ceiling, drop your head slightly, tuck in your buttocks.
  • Come back to neutral position.
  • Let your belly lower toward the floor creating an arch in your back.
  • Keep your head up slightly, with your eyes looking straight ahead.
  • Alternate between poses.

Make it easier: For painful knees, fold a towel or blanket under the knees. For painful wrists, place fists instead of palms on the floor.
