Place your hands on your hips and your fingertips at the base of your spine.

As you reach for your heels, gently lean back and look up.

Lift your ankles and draw up. Make sure you breathe deeply.

Downward facing dog

This is a must-have pose in yoga. You can stretch your shoulders and triceps by holding the downward-facing dog pose for a few deep breaths.

How do you do it?

Start by lying on your back. Your wrists should touch your shoulders. Your knees should feel your hips. Your wrists should be folded inwardly towards the top edge of your mat. Your middle fingers should be parallel to the mat’s leading edge.

Stretch your elbows and relax your upper back.

With your fingers wide open, press your palms into your knuckles. Your weight should be evenly distributed between your hands.

Tuck your toes under your feet as you inhale and lift your knees off the floor. As you exhale, draw your sit bones towards the wall. Next, raise your pelvis towards the ceiling. Slowly straighten your legs, but don’t lock your knees. Use your body to create the shape of an “A.”

Press your pelvis towards the ceiling while you raise your pelvis. Your spine should be stretched while your sit bones are lifted towards the top. Apply equal pressure to your heels and palms.

Your index fingers should be pressed into the ground. You can also contact the outer muscles of your arms by contracting them. Your arms should be lifted from your inner muscles towards the tops of your shoulders. Your shoulder blades should be drawn towards your tailbone and upper back ribs. Your collarbones should be more expansive.

Externally, rotate your arms, so your thumbs face the creases of your elbows.

Continue to press the mat away, and then draw your chest towards your thighs. This will stretch your spine and decompress your spine.

Keep your legs elevated while moving your thighs inward. Your heels should be firmly planted on the ground.

Align your ears with your arms’ tops. Your head should not dangle. Take a few deep, slow breaths by looking between your legs and in the direction of where your navel is.

Inhale and gently bend your knees. Then, return to your hands and knees for release.

Pose of a Pigeon

Do the pigeon position to stretch your hips, quads, and IT band. This is another great pose if you spend most of your day sitting down.

How do you do it?

While on your fours, bring your right knee toward your right wrist and your left foot forwards. Depending on your anatomy, it may be directly behind your wrist or on its outer or inner border.

You can experiment with the stretch that feels right for you. At some point, your right ankle will be in front of your left hip.

Your left leg should be dragged back. Point your toes towards the ceiling with your heel pointed up.

Your legs should be drawn closer together, and your hips should be shaved. You can place a support under your right buttock if necessary to keep your hips level.

As you inhale, bring your fingertips to your fingertips. Next, open your chest and stretch your spine.

As you inhale, move your hands forwards. You can rest your forehead and forearms on the mat. For at least five minutes, you should stay there.

With each inhale, try to ease the stiffness in your right thigh.

To exit this position, push your hands back, raise your hips and slide your leg back onto your fours. Repeat the process on the other side.

Twist the spine of a cat or cow

It’s always fun to spice up old poses. Try a cat/cow position with a twist to realign your spine and stretch your back.

How do you do it?

Start on your hands and knees. Your wrists and knees should be under your shoulders and hips.

Relax and curl your toes under.

Tilt your pelvis back until your tailbone protrudes.

Keep your navel in place to hold your spine and abdominal muscles tight.

Gently lift your head towards the ceiling without lifting your neck.

Allow your feet to touch the floor.

Tie your tailbone down and tilt your pelvis forwards. This will allow your spine to curve again. This will result in the natural curvature and curve of your spine.

Move your navel closer toward your spine.

Pay attention to your navel.

Repeat the Cat-Cow Stretch on each exhale and inhale, synching the movement to your breath.
