When you think of yoga, you most likely think of this pose. It helps lengthen and strengthen back and leg muscles.

  • Begin on hands and knees. Push your body up as if you were going into a push-up, and then push your hips up and angle them so they're facing the ceiling. It's as if your body is in an upside down V. Relax neck muscles, and gaze toward your thighs.
  • To come out of the pose, gently release to your starting position. Repeat 3 times, and do this pose daily.
