Begin in downward facing dog position.

Walk your hands out until your back is straight.

Your hands should be directly under your shoulders.

Keep your head parallel to the floor, eyes down.

Keep your body as straight as a board. Don’t let your butt go in the air like a teepee, or fall down toward the ground.

Hold as long as you can in the beginning and slowly work your way up to 30 seconds and then 1 minute or longer.
