Stand with feet parallel, hip-width apart. Hinge from the hip with a flat back and line up fingers and toes.
Chin to shin, hang like a rag doll. Sway side to side and hold on to opposite elbows, if that feels good. For a shoulder opener, interlace fingers behind your back, making a fist with your paws, and reach toward the front of the room.
Uttanasana: Forward Fold.
