Step back with both feet into a push-up position, holding body weight between toes and hands. Arms should be straight beneath shoulders, palms flat on mat, with elbows pointing back and shoulders level. Lower your body toward the mat, allowing it to hover one to two inches above the mat. Maintain a straight line with your body as you breathe. Keep hips even without lifting or allowing them to sag or dip to one side. (If this position is too difficult to hold, decrease intensity by keeping arms fully extended straight below your shoulders rather than lowering body toward mat, or drop knees to the mat as if performing a modified push-up).
