Step 1

Start by lying on your back on a yoga mat. Engage your abdominal muscles by drawing your belly button in towards your spine and raise both legs off the floor. This is your starting position.

Step 2

At the same time, slightly raise your right leg and slightly lower your left leg, ensuring that neither of your legs touch the floor.

Step 3

At the same time, slightly raise your left leg and slightly lower your right leg, ensuring that neither of your legs touch the floor. This should create a “scissor-like” motion. Continue alternating between right and left for the specified number of repetitions, inhaling for four repetitions and exhaling for four repetitions.
