Begin standing straight, feet hip-width apart. While keeping your weight centered on your heels, engage your abdomen as you hinge forward at the waist, lowering your bottom backwards and towards the ground as if you were about to sit down in a chair. From here, extend your arms up towards the sky and hold for four to six breaths.
