I will get Alix to demonstrate the exercise.
Alix will start in the standing position. She will go through downward dog position so she is bending at the hips, working on hamstring flexibility. She is bending through the hips and keeping everything in a good straight line.
This is excellent in working on hip mobility, range of motion, core, shoulder mobility and stability in the shoulders.
The end position of this exercise is excellent in the back extension part. This is healthy and good for the back. When going from that downward dog position into the end position where the hands are digging into the mat, we are activating the lax, the pax and the shoulder blade muscles. We are activating the muscles that stabilize the shoulders so it is an excellent exercise to build stability in the shoulder.
Going through the downward movement and upward movement challenges the shoulder at different ranges of motion. The downward movement also challenges the core area.
The end position where we are arching back through is excellent for the back because most of us do a lot of sitting. Bending forward is great as we are reversing that movement that we tend to predominate and live in.
Give that exercise a go. Go into the starting position then move into the scoop position. Move your way towards the end position and then back to the downward dog position. You can go through 5 or 10 repetitions.
