- Start by lying flat on your back on a yoga mat with your arms extended out to your sides, forming a T-shape with your body. Brace your core. Keeping your feet together, slowly raise your legs off the floor until they form a 90-degree angle with your hips. This is your starting position.
- Inhale and ensure your core remains braced. While maintaining a 90 degree angle at your hips, slowly lower your feet to the right until your legs are almost parallel with the floor.
- Exhale as you use your arms to press into the floor to brace your upper body as you return your legs to the starting position. Continue alternating between right and left for the specified number of repetitions.
