Setup instructions

1) Sit on the floor and extend your legs out in front.

Perform instructions

1) Bring your left foot in and lift it over your right leg - your left heel should be outside your right thigh.

2) Rest your left elbow against your left leg and put your right hand behind for support - this will cause a twist in your trunk.

3) Hold until the end of the timer.

Note: on every out breath, try twist your trunk away further.
