february pose: dolphin

How to do it:

1. Begin on all fours. Lower onto your forearms. Grab opposite elbows to measure up the distance, then interlace your hands in front of you.
2. Make sure your elbows stay shoulder width apart.
3. Start to curl your toes under, lifting your knees off the floor. Straighten your legs and walk your feet in a bit closer towards your face.
4. Press your forearms into the floor, lengthen the spine and pull your shoulders away from your ears.
5. Let your head hang from the floor, no pressure in the neck.

Stay for 10-15 breaths, then drop your knees and rest in child's pose.
