Shape (Malaysia) - - HEALTH HIGHLIGHT -

A Lie on your back with your legs ex­tended and your arms rest­ing along­side your body, with palms fac­ing down un­der­neath the hips. Press your fore­arms and el­bows into the floor and lift your chest to cre­ate an arch in your up­per back. Lift your shoul­ders and up­per chest, and gen­tly arch your back as you bring the crown of your head to the floor (with very lit­tle weight on the head). Just keep press­ing down through your palms and fore­arms. B If you’re very flex­i­ble, lie in lo­tus while hold­ing on to your big toes. To re­lease, lift your head, ex­hale as you lower your­self back to the mat. Draw the knees into your chest to counter stretch the back.
