Begin lying prone with the arms extended to the sides of the body, the legs hip distance apart, and the forehead on the ground. Bend the knees towards the buttocks and place the hands around the outside of the ankles. Inhale to begin pressing the feet into the palms until both sides of the chest draw up off the floor. Reach through the top of the head. The body should look like an archers bow. To release from this pose, lower the chest and quietly return the legs to the floor.
