Step 1

Start by lying flat on your back on a yoga mat. Bend your left knee and position your foot firmly on the mat. Release and extend your right leg towards the ceiling and turn it out from the hip, ensuring that your toes are pointed and that your spine is in a neutral position. Allow your arms to rest by your sides on the mat. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Exhale, gently draw your ribs to your hips to engage your core. Lower your right leg towards the mat, ensuring that your leg remains turned out from the hip.

Step 3

Inhale. Circle your leg outwards and upwards to return to the starting position. Complete half of the specified number of repetitions on the same side, before completing the remaining repetitions on the other side.
