Locust Pose is a beginner pose that opens the chest and helps to create strength in the back body.

To do Locust Pose, begin laying on the belly on the mat, arms to the side and palms facing down. Begin reaching the top of the head up and out, while the feet reach back and up. While the head and legs begin to lift, engage the back muscles, hold the posture when as much of the body is lifted, pressing the palms into the mat. Careful not to bend the knees or crunch the neck. Locust Pose is meant to create length and strength in the body, focusing on the back.
