This graceful-looking pose opens and stretches
the chest and abdomen, while strengthening the lower abs and hip flexors (which tend to be weak in women), Case says.
Master the move:
Lie faceup on your mat. Pull your heart up toward the ceiling, keeping the top of your head touching the floor. Then lift your legs off the floor. (It’s OK if your legs shake.) Pull in your belly button and, keeping your abdominals
contracted, take five deep inhalations and exhalations.
