Move Targets: Core and Back
Step 1: Lie on your back with your arms stretched out to the sides in a "T" position. Bring the knees together and lie flat enough so the shoulder blades are pulled together.
Step 2: Drop the hips to one side while keeping the knees together. Both shoulders remain on the ground. If they peel up, that means the spine flexibility is limited. Try adding a pillow or yoga block on the side on your mat for your knees to rest on instead of the floor.
Step 3: Immediately brace the core and shift the legs to the other side, passing straight through the beginning position. Advanced: Straighten your legs.
