Another way to position yourself during a float is the 'Scarecrow', to perfect this position you outstretch your arms to the sides of your body. At your elbow, bend your forearms upwards so they are parallel with your body. Your elbows should remain level with your shoulders, and your hands will approximately be level with your head.
This position will allow you to stretch the muscles in your chest, back and shoulders and you can extend your fingers to get a stretch in your fingers and hands.
Once you have mastered the scarecrow, from this position its very easy to move into Position 3, Floating with your hands behind your head.
When you are moving from position to position you may find yourself floating into the sides of the tank, as we have said in previous blogs, just go with it and make it part of your experience!
