Reverse Prayer

Stretch your arms out to your sides, forming a T. Bring your arms behind your back and put hands together in a prayer position on your lower back. Roll your shoulder blades down your back and open up your chest, elongating your spine, supporting through your stomach and keeping your ribs tucked in. Hold for five deep breaths.

Modified Reverse Pigeon

Sit up straight in your chair. Cross one leg over the other so your foot rests gently on your opposite leg’s knee. Feel a stretch in the hip of your crossed leg. Tighten your core and straighten your back. To enhance the stretch, raise the heel of the foot on the ground. Hold for five deep breaths.
