- Begin on all fours on a yoga mat, resting on your knees and placing your hands slightly wider than your shoulders. Step your feet towards the back of the mat, one at a time, and lift your hips so that your body forms a straight line from your head down to your heels. Gently draw your ribs to your hips to engage your core. Hold this position for the specified amount of time, controlling your breathing throughout. As you hold this position, focus on drawing up through your pelvic floor and ensure that your shoulders remain in line with your wrists. You should also try to press your shoulders away from the mat to help stabilise through the upper body.
