Setup instructions

1) Sit tall with your tailbone and feet planted on the floor - your knees should be pointing up.

2) Grab your left leg, internally rotate it and lay it flat on the floor - your thigh should be pointing forward. Lift your right foot over your left thigh.

3) Now, lift your left elbow over your right knee - this will cause your trunk to rotate. Try to keep upright.

Perform instructions

1) Hold this position until the end of the timer.

Note: take deep breaths during this pose. On the breath out, twist your trunk away further to emphasise the stretch.
