Sitting cross-legged, slide the soles of your feet together. If you feel your lower back rounding, sit on the edge of a blanket. Press your feet together, tuck your tailbone under and let your knees drop open. Cup your hands around your feet; don’t pull. Press your feet together and continue to let your knees fall open; lean slightly forward to increase the stretch [shown]. Hold for 5–8 complete breaths.
[COOL DOWN] To finish your workout, lie on your left side with a pillow between your legs and another under your head. Inhale and exhale for 4 counts each. Concentrate on your breathing for 5–10 minutes, letting go of any tension or strain in your body.
