  1. Lie down on your belly.
  2. Rest your arms out in front of you, palms facing each other.
  3. Breathe in and lift your legs and arms.
  4. Take a couple of breaths in the pose.
  5. Relax arms and legs as you exhale.
  6. Try different arm positions: arms out in front of your body, hands linked behind your back, or arms out to the sides like you're flying. Have Fun!
  7. Lie down on a folded blanket and pull yourself across a slippery floor or have a friend or parent pull you around on a blanket or bolster! Imagine you are in the Olympics and race down the icy track.
