How to do this pose:
(Always be sure to check with your Dr before performing new exercise)

1. Lie on your back and if necessary place a folded towel under your shoulders to support your neck. Bend your knees and place the soles of your feet on the floor close to your buttocks. Your knees and feet should both be hips width apart.

2. Exhale and slowly curl your tailbone and buttocks off the floor and continue peeling one vertebra at a time off the floor. Arms are by your side extended toward your feet.

3. Lift your buttocks as high as you comfortably can or until the thighs are about parallel to the floor. Keep your knees over your heels and lengthen your tailbone toward the back of your knees.

4. Lengthen the back of your neck as it is on the floor and lift and expand the ribcage. Watch as each breath rises and falls in your abdomen.

5. Stay in this pose up to a minute, but only as long as your body wants to stay in it. Release by slowly rolling the spine down to the floor. Hug your knees gently toward your chest and breathe.
