Focus on your breath. Lie face-up on your yoga mat with your feet flat on the floor, hip-width distance apart. Bring your knees to touch, lift your arms over your head, and rest them on the floor. Inhale for six seconds, exhale for six seconds, and continue this breathwork for two minutes.
Now, grab your yoga block and place it between your inner thighs, close to your pelvic bone. Your feet should be close enough to your butt that your fingertips can graze your heels. Place your hands behind your head and push your lower back into the floor.
Engaging the muscles of your core, lift your torso straight up until your shoulder blades are off the mat. Lower your torso back to the floor, and repeat this movement a total of 10 times.
Keeping the block between your thighs, lift your legs straight into the air. Be sure that your lower back remains firmly pressed into the mat.
