Half Forward Fold Flow

  • Stand with your feet wide apart and parallel, and put your hands on your hips.
  • Engage your core by drawing your navel in and up, and your front ribs toward each other—you'll feel your spine lengthen in the process.
  • Inhale—tilt your torso forward so that it's parallel to the floor, while maintaining a long, neutral spine and keeping your knees bent a little.
  • Exhale—rise to stand.
  • Continue for 10 reps, moving to the rhythm of your breath.
