Supine Angel

Equipment Needed:

  • Open floor or yoga mat


  1. Lie on your back and bend your knees so your feet are flat
  2. Tilt your pelvis back so your low back is flat on the floor
  3. Tuck your shoulder blades back
  4. Put your arms down at your sides and place your forearms flat on the floor
  5. Take a belly breath, brace your core, and start to slide your arms along the floor as if making a snow angel
  6. Move your arms as far overhead as you can without them or your low back coming off of the floor.
  7. Pause at the top and return to the starting position

Common Errors:

  • Make sure to keep your arms and spine flat against the floor through the entire movement
