Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Shift your weight into your right leg, pick up your left leg and point your left knee down toward the ground. Grab a hold of the inside of your left ankle with your left hand. Gently press your foot into your hand and extend your opposite arm upward. Hang here for 5 long, deep breaths. Try the other side.

Bridge
Lie on your back. Place your feet on the ground next to your hips. Press your arms on the ground along side your body. Lift your hips and chest up, then interlace your hands under your hips. Try to avoid letting your legs open out to the sides. Hang here for 5 long, deep breaths.

Wheel
Press your palms into the ground along side your ears. Press through your arms and lift your body up. Straighten your arms and as you do so keep lifting through your upper back. Press down evenly through both feet and imagine reaching through your knees. Hang here for 5 long, deep breaths and gently roll down. To come down gently tuck your chin into your chest, bend your elbows and lower down slowly. Hug your knees into your chest to relax your back.
