Gently close your eyes and notice how good it feels to just let go gently draw your knees together pulling your knees into your chest and rock little circles on your lower back and then to set up a bridge pose. 

Place your feet flat on your mat about hip-distance apart take your hands down by your sides and position yourself. So your fingertips barely graze your heels and tuck your tailbone up to the ceiling and lift your hips up as your knees press forward and your weight presses down. Evenly through your feet keep lifting up through your hips so much that your shoulders begin to roll open, If it feels good for you today add a chest expansion by shimmying your shoulders underneath and interlacing through your hands and press your forearms into the mat as you lift up even higher, now make sure that your weight is anchoring evenly through your feet as if you're pressing two footprints into your mat or three two one slowly release coming all the way down and hold your knees into your chest for full wind bones rocking out little circles on your lower back or feel free to take any other postures that serve you before we release into our final pose.

Beginner's Tip

Often it's tough to unleash the heads of the thigh bones and soften the groins during this cause. This makes pressure all through the body and limits the breath. Take 2 10-pound sand luggage and lay one across every high thigh, parallel to the crease of the groin. Then imagine that the heads of the thigh bones area unit sinking removed from the burden, down into the ground.
