- Start by lying straight on your back on a yoga mat with your legs extended out in front of you. Bend your elbows and place your hands behind your earlobes. Gently raise your legs off the floor so that they form a 90-degree angle at your hips. Engage your abdominal muscles by drawing your belly button in towards your spine. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Exhale. Extend your arms to bring your hands up towards your feet — slowly lifting your head, shoulder blades and torso off the mat.
- Inhale. Lower your torso, shoulder blades and head to the mat and place your hands behind your earlobes to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
