Dear Readers:

Today, I am sharing an exercise that feels as good as it looks, but don’t be fooled: this full body challenge exercise is hard to master.

Step One

Childs pose, hinging form the hips,
bottom resting down towards feet,
arms lengthen out slightly wider than shoulder.

Step Two

Transfer weight into forearms.
Allow elbows to lift away from the floor
Extend the spine.

Step Three

Continue to hinge body weight forward.
Engage the triceps bringing weight into hands.
Commence a small extension through the spine
keeping shoulders broad.

Step Four

Press down into hands.
Your spine is in a long extension,
and supported by the core.

Step Five
Posterior tilt pelvis,
and hinge weight back towards a plank position torso.

Step Six

Draw the spine into a C- curve position by drawing the pelvis under.

Step Seven
Back to where we started: in child’s pose.

 

Try the move and let me know what you think!

Much love,

Jo
