How To Perform Exercise

Steps :

1.) Start by sitting cross legged and keep your ankles positioned underneath the knees.

2.) Take your fingertips on your right hand and place them on the floor in front of you whilst your left fingertips are placed behind your body.

3.) With fingers in place put pressure down on the ground, twisting to your left or right, using more of your spine in the motion, and exhale to keep twisting deeper.

4.) Hold this position for up to 10 breaths keeping your spine up straight so that your neck and head are aligned over your hips then return back to the starting position.

5.) Repeat this pose but in the opposite direction.
