Cobra for Women
- Lie face down with your legs slightly wider apart than your hips. Place your palms on the mat next under your shoulders, fingers pointing forward. Hug your elbows in close to your ribcage as you draw your shoulder blades down your back toward your waist. You should feel an opening in your chest.
- Inhale and use your back muscles (not your arms) to lift your head and chest off the floor. Breathe smoothly and deeply. Keep your neck long and in line with your spine, looking at the floor a few feet in front of you. Exhale as you return to the starting position. Hold for one breath; repeat 10 times.
