Begin in Mountain. Inhale and raise your arms over your head. Exhale as you bend forward at the hips. Continue to exhale, bringing the arms forward and descending the body beginning with the head dropping forward, followed by the upper back, continuing along the spine until you are hanging forward. Breathe easily as you hang. Your fingers may or may not touch the floor. Relax your arms and let them hang. Hold. Use an inhalation to help you return to standing, reversing the process by which you descended, so your head lifts up on the top of your neck last.
