The Baby Cobra pose in yoga, is a gentle back-bending posture that can help to increase spinal flexibility and improve circulation throughout the body. It is often performed in a yoga class as part of a sun salutation and can be modified to suit all levels. To begin, lie on your stomach with your forehead on the mat and your hands resting on the floor beneath your shoulders. On an inhale, press your palms into the floor to lift your chest off the mat while keeping your elbows close to your ribs. Keep pressing down through your pubic bone as you arch back, lifting your head up and extending through the crown of your head. Keep lengthening through both sides of your torso. If comfortable, reach back with one hand at a time as you attempt to open up through the chest and collarbones. Keep breathing deeply as you stay in this pose for 5-10 breaths then exhale as you lower yourself back down onto the mat.
