How To Do:
As you inhale, jump your legs apart and simultaneously extend your arms out to the side at shoulder height.Turn your right leg up. Align the heel of your right foot with the arch of your left. Straighten your legs and hinging from the top of your leg, reach to the right. Swing your right hand down to the floor, behind your right ankle.
roll your right thigh outward and slide your right buttock under.cut the outer edge of your left foot down and press the left thigh back.Press into your right palm and slide your right shoulder blade down your back. Move your lower ribs forward and shift your upper ribs back. Turn your head and gaze up towards your left hand. Hold for a few breaths. Then anchoring down through the outer left heel, swing yourself upright. Turn your right foot forward and jump back to standing pose. Repeat to the other side.
Variation: Work with your hand on block or a chair and see if that increases the length of your side body. Observe how the extra height allows you to turn your torso more.
If you feel neck compression when you turn your head: Work for a while with your head forward facing. Without tilting towards the shoulder, move your head back slightly and observe the impact this has on your chest.
Avoid jumping if you have sore knees or sore back, step your feet apart.
