Step 1

Begin seated on a yoga mat, legs straight and resting your hands slightly wider than your shoulders. Using your glutes, press your heels into the floor to lift your hips so that your body forms a straight line from your chest down to your heels. Brace your core and glutes as you hold this position. Ensure that your shoulders remain in line with your wrists and press your palms into the mat to help stabilise through the upper body. Hold this position for the specified amount of time, controlling your breathing throughout.
