Benefits: This inversion stimulates blood flow to your head, strengthens your shoulders, and promotes core balance.  

How to do it: 

  • Start in table pose, move down to your forearms
  • move into Dolphin Pose
  • begin moving your feet towards your elbows
  • keep your elbows in line with your shoulders
  • keep your gaze towards your hands
  • lift one leg up, keep it straight
  • with the other leg, begin to hop, moving your body into position until straight leg is vertical. Eventually, you won't need to hop, and your legs will lift into place gracefully
  • once the opposing leg is vertical and the core is balanced, bring both legs to vertical. 
  • Repeat on the other leg
