Kneel on your right knee and place the right hand on the mat directly under the right shoulder. Support the body with your abdominal strength and the right arm. Lift the left leg up so it is straight and parallel to the floor and the left knee and foot are aligned. Make sure that your right thigh stays in line with your right hip. Bring the left hand behind the head, adding extra length to that side of the body. Push the head into the hand and lengthen through the crown of the head, eliciting help from the core. Inhale quickly as you swing the free leg as far forward as possible without swiveling the pelvis forward or back. Exhale quickly as you swing the leg as far behind the body as possible without losing balance or stability. Keep the abdominals tucked in tight and the body rigid. Do five repetitions, and then switch sides and repeat.
