- Lay on your right side with your arm extended along the mat and your head relaxed on your arm. Extend your legs so that they are in line with the rest of your body, ensuring that your hips are stacked, your toes are pointed and that you maintain a small gap between your waist and the floor. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Exhale, gently draw your ribs to your hips to engage your core. Squeeze your obliques to draw your right hip towards your ribs, raising both legs off the floor. This should cause your left waist to press into the mat.
- Inhale. Release your obliques and lower your legs to return to the starting position. Complete half of the specified repetitions on the same side before repeating the remaining repetitions on the other side.
