1. Lie on your back with your arms by your sides and your knees bent at a right angle. Inhale and lift your head and shoulders off the mat. This is your starting position.
2. Exhale whilst extending your arms and legs at the same time, as shown in the image. Reach long as though trying to touch the wall in front and behind you.
3. Inhale whilst circling your arms back down to your sides. At the same time, bend your knees back to a right angle position.

Perform 2 sets of 10 repetitions and keep your core engaged throughout. This exercise can also be performed with your head and shoulders on the mat.
