Step 1

Begin seated on a yoga mat, legs straight and resting your hands slightly wider than your shoulders. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Press your heels into the floor, using your hamstrings and glutes to lift your hips and extend through your shoulders so that your body forms a straight line from your chest down to your knees. Ensure that your shoulders are directly over your wrists and your knees are directly over your ankles.

Step 3

Slowly lower your hips down to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
