Kneel, then take your knees wide and big toes to touch.
Walk your hands forward until your forehand rests gently on the ground.
Practice deep, steady inhales and exhales for about 3-5 breaths as you let go of distraction and focus on your yoga practice.
Rise from child’s pose to tabletop, with your shoulders stacked over wrists and your hips stacked over knees.
Place equal weight through your hands and knees, relax your feet, engage your abdominal muscles and lengthen your spine.
Gaze is down in between your hands.
(Tip: if this bothers your knees, place a towel or rolled up edge of a yoga mat underneath your knees for more support.)
Press into your hands to round your upper back, as if a string were pulling the middle of your back to the ceiling.
Drop your head and tuck your chin to chest, hugging your belly toward spine.
