1. FORWARD BEND
Standing straight up, feet together, reach your hands up to the ceiling and swan-dive your arms and chest down towards the ground. Place your hands either side of your feet and bring your chest in towards your knees.
2. LIZARD POSE
In a low lunge position with your front knee bent, keep your back leg straight behind you. Try and keep your back knee off the ground and place both hands to the inner side of your front foot. From here work your way to the ground by coming onto your forearms allowing your chest to move closer to the ground.
3. STRADDLE JAPANA FOLD
Sit with legs apart and knees facing the ceiling, bring your hands forwards into the empty space between your legs and walk them out in front of you until you feel like you can’t reach any more. Try to get your chest and head closer to the ground.
