2️⃣ Look down between your hands, lengthening the back of your neck and drawing your abdominal muscles toward your spine. On your exhale tuck your toes and start lifting your knees off the floor. Distribute your weight evenly between your heels and the palms of your hands. 
3️⃣ Bring your body to one straight line. Engage your glute muscles. Make sure your hips are not sinking too low or sticking up in the air and your lower back is straight.
4️⃣ Keep the space between your shoulder blades wide while broadening across your collar bones. Press balls of your feet onto the mat. 
Stay here for 5 cycles of breath or if you're looking to build stamina - up to 5 min
