Pose benefits: Strengthens arms, inner thighs and abdomen
Come into a squat position with your feet about as wide as your mat, toes facing out to the sides. Plant your palms on the ground under your shoulders. Bend your arms slightly, keeping your elbows pointing towards the back and squeeze your knees firmly around your elbows or upper arms. Rock your weight forward into your hands, coming up high on your toes. Lift your feet off the ground, trying to connect the big toes and bring your feet in towards your bottom.
