This pose is intended to help strengthen the core. Start with your feet together toes and ankles touching. Bring your arms up overhead from the side. Interlace your fingers and contract your thighs. Press your hips forward and straighten your back, stretch your arms up toward the ceiling and slowly bend towards the right side of the room. Keep your chin up and squeeze your biceps to your ears. Legs and arms are straight, open your chest up and don’t bend backward. Hold this pose for 20-30 seconds. Switch sides.
