2. Keep your back pressed against the floor.

Proper Form

1. Engage your abdominal muscles and use your hands to draw your bent knee closer to your chest while extending the opposite leg away from you.

2. Hold the stretch for 5 seconds and then switch legs, drawing the other leg into your chest.

Breathing Technique

1. As you draw one leg in, take a deep inhale.

2. As you switch legs, exhale.


1. Lie on your back on a mat with your legs extended, arms by your sides.

2. Bend one knee and draw it into your chest, with the opposite leg remaining extended and hovering off the floor.
