0

Preparation:

  1. Lie on the back with both knees bent and feet off the floor. Place the hands behind the head. Float the head off the floor.
  2. Practice 3 sets of breath with hollowing. Feel the belly deflate with the hollow.
  3. The lower the leg to the floor demands more abdominal control. If you feel the back, bring the leg higher or return to beginner version. This is about the abdominals working!
