1. Start seated with your legs extended in front of you. Lean back slightly and lift through your chest to keep your back from rounding. Bend your knees and lift your feet off the floor, straightening them slowly. Lift your arms off the floor and bring them out in front of you, parallel to the floor with palms facing each other. To make it more challenging, lower your legs and torso toward the floor (Low Boat Pose), then pull yourself back to High Boat Pose, alternating back and forth.
