Just a still water should do.

From all fours (on your hands and knees) bring your hands slightly forward of your shoulders. Firm your hands down, pressing through the outer edges of the palm and the finger tips – imagine clawing into the ground to create a little suction cup of air in the middle of your palm. On an exhalation, engage your lower belly drawing the navel back to the spine. Press the floor away from you, lift your hips back and up to push yourself back into an upside-down V pose.
