How to do it:
1. Stand with your feet hip-width apart, pointing forward. Take a deep breath in and raise your arms straight up over your head.
2. Push your shoulders down and away from your ears. Then, bend at your hips and lower yourself, as if sitting in a chair. Go as low as you feel comfortable. Lengthen through your spine, and breathe deeply. Try to hold this pose for six to eight breaths. Return to standing. Repeat.
