Step 1

Lie on your back on the yoga mat and place both hands by your sides. Extend both legs and engage your abdominal muscles by drawing your belly button in towards your spine. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Exhale. Bend your knees and, using your abdominals, bring them in towards your chest. Allow your lower back to lift off the mat to allow full contraction of your abdominals.

Step 3

Inhale. Slowly lower your back to the mat and extend your legs to return to the starting position, but without lowering your feet to the floor. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
