Strengthen your body and relax your mind with this flexible yoga routine.
Jeff Von Hoene
From Stick Pose, lower knees to the mat, then legs and hips, and lift upper body onto palms with hands flat on mat, arms straight below shoulders. Keep elbows straight but not locked. Shoulders should be down, away from ears. Lift chest and look upward slightly, keeping back of neck long. Point toes behind you, tighten butt, and feel the stretch through your abdomen, chest, and shoulders.
