to come into a modified squat position. Place your hands on your thighs for support. As you exhale, squeeze in your abdomen as the belly lifts up, creating a hollow arch. With this exhalation, actively compress your abdominal muscles. Feel the strong contraction in the entire area of your solar plexus. Relax the abdominal muscles as you inhale fully and completely.
