WHAT TO TRY
The downward dog yoga move.
Start on all fours. Position your hips over your knees and your shoulders over your wrists. Then ‘walk’ your hands a few inches in front of your shoulders.
Curl your toes under, lift your hips, and straighten your legs so your bottom rises upwards.
Push your palms into the floor and your arms straight to elevate your pelvis. Draw in the front of your rib cage and press your legs back.
Extend your heels away from your toes and pull them toward the floor.
Relax your shoulders, head and neck. Stay here for four to five long, deep breaths.
