Begin in Forward fold and press your palms or fingertips into the floor beside your feet. Inhale and straighten your elbows and arch your torso away from your thighs, finding as much length between your pubic bone and navel as possible. With your palms (or fingertips) push down and back against the floor, and lift the top of your sternum up (away from the floor) and forward. To help arch the back, bend your knees slightly and work toward elongating the legs. Exhale. Inhale and look forward, being careful to not compress the back of your neck.
