Stretch for a longer body

Downward-Facing Dog

STRETCHES AND FIRMS SHOULDERS, TORSO AND LEGS
Kneel on all fours with knees beneath hips, hands 10cm in front of your shoulders and toes tucked. Keeping your abs tight, tuck your pelvis, inhale and straighten your legs by lifting your hips until your body forms an upside-down V (shown). Exhale and lift your hips higher by pressing back from your hands; lower your heels towards the mat. Hold for five breaths. Inhale, look forward, and walk your feet up to your hands. Exhale and roll up to stand.
