1. Lie on your side with your spine in a horizontal line and your hips stacked on top of each other. Place your hands on either side of your head, using your lower arm to balance yourself on the floor. Pull in your abs and stretch your legs away from your center, lifting them slightly off the floor to maintain the horizontal line of your spine.
2. Exhale and gently move your top leg forward; inhale as you bring it back. You'll find a range within which you can maintain control. Repeat this motion on the other side.
3. Repeat this movement 10 times.
