Cow Face Pose
Begin on hands and knees. Cross right knee in front left, winging feet out to either side. Very gently use hands to bring sitz bones to the ground inside of heels. Reach left arm high, and bend the elbow so left hand falls between shoulder blades. Reach right hand up your back, bending right elbow, to clasp left hand. If your hands don't reach, you can grab the back of your shirt or use a strap. Stay upright for a deep breath, then hinge forward from your hips to fold forward. Breathe here for 5 deep breaths, releasing the arms if your shoulders begin to tense. Repeat on the other side.
