Step 1

Start by lying flat on your back on a yoga mat. Bend your knees and bring the soles of your feet together, allowing your knees to fall out to either side. Engage your abdominal muscles by drawing your belly button in towards your spine. Bring the palms of your hands together and extend your arms along your torso. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Exhale. While keeping your lower body as still as possible, slowly lift your head, shoulder blades, and torso off the floor and sit up tall, reaching your hands towards your toes.

Step 3

Inhale. Slowly lower your torso, shoulder blades and head to the mat to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
