1 Lay on your back, draw your arms overhead, by your ears. Extend both legs up to a 45 degree angle, keeping them long and straight, but not locked. Make sure to not arch your back by keeping it on the mat at all times.

2 Raise your arms, head, and shoulders in sequence, curling the body up off the mat, gradually. Your arms should be roughly parallel to your legs.

3 Reach your fingers toward your toes. Avoid tensing your thigh muscles as your curn upward. Return to rest position and repeat for another 6-10 times.

Difficulty: Intermediate
