7:02 AM How did you master day 1? Was the easy pose an easy one? If you can't do it well, don't worry - it's all a process! Your body gets used to all the stretching - I promise! 
It's a new day, time to show you a second pose. Maybe you like this one here more!

Today we get to know the COBRA

It is also called Bhujangasana and it's good for stretching chest, lungs, shoulders, and abdomen. 

1. Lie prone on the floor. Stretch your legs back, tops of the feet on the floor. Spread your hands on the floor under your shoulders. Hug the elbows back into your body.
2. Press the tops of the feet and thighs and the pubis firmly into the floor.
3. On an inhalation, begin to straighten the arms to lift the chest off the floor, going only to the height at which you can maintain a connection through your pubis to your legs. Press the tailbone toward the pubis and lift the pubis toward the navel. Narrow the hip points.
4. Firm the shoulder blades against the back, puffing the side ribs forward. Lift through the top of the sternum but avoid pushing the front ribs forward. Distribute the back bend evenly throughout the entire spine.
5. Hold the pose anywhere from 15 to 30 seconds, breathing easily. 

Let's do this. 
Take your time and enjoy it!
