Exhale to ground through your feet.
Inhale to set our intention throughout your body.

Inhale shoulders up.
Exhale shoulders around and down.

Spread legs into a wide Upward Stretch, with arms raised straight up from shoulders.
Exhale to ground your hips down through your feet.
Inhale to lengthen up through your spine, back of neck, crown, and forehead.

Bend knees slightly, with all joints loose and muscle bands active.
Exhale, while tightening your abdominal muscles, slowly bend at your hips' crease.
