  2. Helps to keep the spine and shoulders supple.
  3. Reduces discomfort in the dorsal spine area.
  4. Increases the flexibility of the back and hips.

Primary Principles:

Engage the triceps and the shoulder loop in order to avoid the upper body from collapsing. Lift the chin off the chest and keep the eyes focused softly on the big toes.

  3. Breath: Inhalation to lengthen the spine. Exhalation to extend the legs and arms.
