  • Come to your fingertips, bend your elbows to side and feel your shoulders pull back. Keep your sternum extended to the front of the mat
  • Energetically scissor your thighs towards one another, so you're not sagging into your hips (if you are very mobile). Use this scissoring action as a resistance to go deeper.
  • Relax your face, jaw and gluteus muscles.
