How To Perform Exercise

Steps :

1.) Start by standing up straight with feet shoulder width apart, putting your palms together and grounding yourself through your feet.

2.) Extend your arms skyward and fold your body forward and place your hands on the floor.

3.) Then either step or jump back with both feet into a plank position, creating a straight line with your body from your heels to your shoulders.

4.) Bring your shoulders forward in front of your wrist and lower your body to about 2 inches off of the floor.

5.) Continue to lower your body to the floor and then inhale as you press your hands to the floor and curve up your chest into a Cobra pose.

6.) Tuck your toes and lift your hips up high into a Downward Facing Dog, holding for 5 to 10 breaths and then return back up to the standing position.
