Take a deep breath in, and as you exhale, fold forward from your hips, reaching your hands towards the ground. Let your head and neck relax. Hold for a few breaths, then slowly come back up.

2. Chair pose: Stand in front of your chair with your feet hip-width apart. Inhale and raise your arms overhead, palms facing each other. Exhale and bend your knees, as if sitting back onto the chair.
