These 10 poses are staples in the meditative practice, and are easy enough for beginners. This quick 20-minute routine will stretch you head to toe. Namaste.
From Plank, exhale and bend your elbows so they point directly behind you. Allow your arms to touch your sides as you exhale and slowly lower your body all the way to the mat. Be careful that your hips don't sag -- your chest and belly should touch the mat at the same time. Hold for one deep breath.
Make it easier: Place your knees on the mat for this pose until you build up more strength in your arms and core.
