First we are going to get up onto our hands and knees. Knees are going to be right underneath our hips. Hands are going to be right underneath our shoulders. We are going to round out tucking your tail bone under squeezing your abs exhaling. Then you are going to arch up bending your elbows slightly lifting your chin and tail bone inhaling. Exhale round out. Inhale arch up. Exhale round up. And inhale arch up. Flatten out like a table top your back and from this pose bring your right foot forward crossing in front of your left leg. The left leg is going to stretch back and you are going to get into pigeon pose with your hips even. Slowly you are going to sink down. Come down gently down to your elbows and eventually slide out and relax as much as you can letting your hips open wide. Breathe into your body. Relax. Slide your hands underneath your shoulders.
