1. Lie on your back with arms at your sides, palms facing down.

2. Lift your head and shoulders off the floor. Holding your right knee, extend your left leg out. (The distance between your raised leg and the floor will depend on your abdominal strength and the weight of your leg. If you are careful not to arch your back, you will not overextend your leg.)

3. Keeping your head in alignment and elbows bent, slowly switch sides, grasping left knee and extending right leg. Breathe in for two changes; breathe out for two changes.

4. Do 10 changes, or 5 moves per side.
