Face down on the mat, curl your toes under, lift up your hips and support yourself on your forearms.
Using your core strength (abdominals), make your body stiff and straight like a plank.
Breathe. Hold this position. Start with 30 seconds, and work up to one minute. Sing or talk while holding
the position. And keep breathing.
Challenge: Instead of resting on your forearms, put your hands on the mat under your shoulders and do the
pose with straight arms, like the top of a push-up.
Further challenge: Do some push-ups. Keep breathing.
