Stretches and mobilises the spine backwards
Start position: Lie on your stomach, and prop yourself on your elbows, lengthening your spine. Keep your shoulders back and neck long.
Action: Keeping your neck long, arch your back up by pushing down on your hands. You should feel a gentle stretch in the stomach muscles as you arch backwards. Breathe and hold for 5 to 10 seconds. Return to the starting position.
Repeat 8 to 10 times.
- Don’t bend your neck backwards.
- Keep your hips grounded.
