Salabhasana or grasshopper pose

Lying face down, beginner's variation: you are going to bring your arms backwards keeping them close to the sides, palms of the hands touching the ground

Activate the muscles of the legs and back, with an inhalation you elevate the chest, head at the same time that the feet get off the ground

The legs may be together or apart at hip distance

Breathe fluidly while maintaining strength, Inhale, exhaling lower the whole body, make a pillow in front of you with your hands and rest

To go into the posture you can make a preparation: place your arms under your abdomen, hiding your elbows well, palms against the floor or making a small fist

You bend your left leg, raising your right leg and placing your knee or thigh over your foot, where you reach

The leg is long, doing an extension going down your spine

Slowly you change your leg

You flex now your right leg to place the left one stretched out

Foot active

It is a comfortable posture

Slowly undo resting your leg on the ground, stretching knees, put your arms out and again make a pillow in front of you to rest your forehead, neck and back

and let the musculature relax in general

To go towards the posture placing the arms again under the abdomen, hiding the elbows well, palms against the mat two little fists, whichever you prefer

Legs together and very active, the two feet are lifted by the force of the gluteus, of the lumbar region

and the thrust of the fists and forearms make on the mat

Inhale

As you exhale, support your feet

To undo support the legs, put out the arms and make a pillow in front with your hands to support the forehead and relax
