How to do it:

  • Lie on your stomach, lift your shoulders, and cross your arms under your chest.
  • Place your forehead on the blanket.
  • Stretch to the sides with your fingers, but not too much.
  • Close your eyes and take 8 deep breaths. Repeat this exercise again, putting the bottom arm on top this time, after a small break.
