- Begin lying on a yoga mat in a supine (facing up) position.
- Bend your elbows, moving them directly underneath your shoulders; avoid angling your elbows out to the sides.
- With control, brace you abs (you should still be able to breathe normally), squeeze your glutes, and lift your body up off the mat. Be sure to keep your head/neck in a neutral position by looking up at the ceiling. Don't let your hips drop down to the ground at any point.
- Hold for 30 seconds.
