Begin with a supported stretch for your hip flexors, thoracic spine and shoulders/chest. Strengthen your shoulders (and spine extensors) through a range of motion from more simple to more complex and loaded positions. Lengthen your hip flexors and strengthen your hip extensors in low lunges. Progress your belly down backbends from the more stable surface of your yoga mat to the less stable surface of blanket-sliding on the floor as practice Shalabasana (Locust Pose), Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose) and Urdhva Mukha Svanasana (Upward Facing Dog Pose). Prop list: 2 blocks, blanket.
