  3. Hold this position while relaxing your neck and taking a deep breath into your back.
  4. Exhale as you gentle connect and lift your pelvic floor and transverse abdominals {lower belly} to start to stack your spine back up one vertebrae at a time, and finish standing tall lengthening through the top of your head.
