How-to: Lie down on your back with arms alongside your body, and bring knees into your chest. With legs either bent or straight, lift your hips and reach your feet toward the floor behind your head. Interlace your fingers with arms straight on the ground, and squeeze your shoulder blades and elbows close together. Bend your elbows and support your middle back with your palms, fingers facing up. Either one at a time or together, lift your legs up vertical, gently pressing your knees and ankles together.
Tips: To lift your body more vertical, squeeze your ribs between your thumbs and forefingers, and gently lift your body up and forward. Use deep breaths to expand your chest and increase the distance between your shoulders and hips.
Benefits: Opens the neck and back. Good for circulation.
