This is a wonderful chest and heart Chakra opening as well as keeping your spine flexible. As avid surfers, we tend to build up tension in forward rotation through the pecks from paddling. Keeping the chest open and lengthening and strengthening the back will create longevity in your surfing, and less pain in your body.
Placing your palms down along side of you, keep your feet and knees parallel and aligned to your waist. Inhale while pressing your palms into the ground and lifting your hips and rising with your chest. Make sure to keep your thighs and knees pressing up and towards your feet, working less of the buttocks and more of the legs. When you feel ready, interlace your fingers under your spine, rolling your shoulders in to open the chest and squeeze the shoulder blades towards the spine.
