Step 1: Stand 8-10 inches away from the wall, feet hip width apart with your back pressing into the wall.


Step 2: Begin to slide your back down the wall by bending your knees. Make sure your buttocks stay above the knees.

Step 3: Stop when you feel like you are sitting down comfortably, keep pressing your back into the wall. Inhale as you slide down a little more and then hold your breath as long as you can. Inhale as you slide back up by pressing your back into the wall. Feel like you are being pulled back into the wall by a magnet behind you. Hold these positions as long as you can. Repeat 3 times.
