Lie on the floor with your legs straight and together, arms by your sides. Take a few deep breaths allowing your belly to drop in toward the floor with your exhales.
When you are ready, let in your shoulder blades slide down your back as you bring your arms over your head so that your finger tips are pointing to the wall behind you. Don't take your hands so far back that the ribs pop up, keep the ribs integrated in the front.
This is your beginning position.
