Press back into downward facing dog. Pedal the legs, bending one knee and then the other, reaching each heel towards the floor in turn. Bend your knees and reach your butt up high. Then slowly straighten the legs. Take any other movements that help you settle into the pose. When you feel ready, hold the posture for 5 to 10 breaths.
