- Stretch your hands overhead to the ceiling and look up
- Take a big breath in through the nose
- Purse your lips, exhale through the mouth and reach out of the hips to fold forward
- Imagine your whole spine extending and surrender the tension in your neck and jaw
- Hold for 15 - 30 seconds
- Breathe in through the nose
