- Lie flat on your back with your arms close to your sides, palms facing down. Keeping your bum on the floor, inhale as you press your hands and forearms into the ground to arch your back, lifting your shoulders off the floor. Tilt your head backward and rest the top of your head on the floor.
- Keeping your legs strong, hold for five breaths. Then lower back to the mat.
