    This one is toughie so don't get discouraged if you can't do it on your first try. Practice by using some sort of object to lean on, such as a block like the one in the picture. This pose is also great for stretching your legs. Do this pose every morning to start your day right.

    Start by laying your legs and feet on the floor. Be sure to have your feet touching but keep in mind your legs should be spread apart. Slowly lower your upper body and place your belly between your legs. Your head should be gently placed on the yoga mat. Stay in this pose for 1 minute.

    The easiest way to nail this pose is to pretend you are flying. Start by laying down flat on your stomach with your arms in front of you. Lift your legs and arms slowly at the same time. Hold this pose for about 5 to 10 seconds and repeat 5 times.
