Objective:

To relax the whole body while strengthening legs, back, neck and chest.

Target:

Spine, neck and chest

Safety Instructions and Technique:

Lie on your back with the bolster supporting your lower back and hips. Slide the arms outward with the back of your palms touching the floor, to make a T. Press your feet into the floor, inhale and lift your back up, pushing down into your arms and shoulders, which in turn will raise the chest up. Engage the legs, buttocks and abdomen to lift the hips higher. Exhale and slowly roll the spine back down to the floor.
