1. Lizard Pose

Do this for 1 minute [10–15 breaths] each side

2. Up The Wall

Sit facing the wall and lie onto your back. Move your buttocks as close to wall as possible, lift your legs, rest the back of legs against the divider, legs opposite to the ground. Rest with your arms out to sides, palms up.

Hold for 15 seconds.

3. Head-to-Knee Pose

Sit on the floor without slumping, legs developed straight before you and knees twisted if essential to keep the spine from adjusting. Bend your right knee and open your hip, bringing the sole of the right foot into the innermost left thigh and the right knee toward the ground. Inhale and stretch spine. Exhale while curving forward from the hips over the left leg, keeping the spine and neck long, and put the hands on either side of the left leg. Look at your biggest toe while breathing in and out.

Repeat on the other side.

4. Standing Forward Bend

Walk your feet to your hands. Feet hip-width separated and a slight curve in the knees, while holding your elbows. Breathe out while extending down through the crown of your head. To come up, discharge your arms, root through your feet, and gradually rise.

5. Happy Baby

Lie flat on your back, and lift your legs while bending knees, feet curved towards the ceiling. Grab your biggest toe of each foot with each hand while further bending your knees towards the armpits. If capable, sway left to right, to gently massage the spine.

Hold for 15 seconds.
