Lie on your back with your knees pulled into your chest. Inhale and exhale slowly. Place your arms straight out on each side at shoulder level. Face your palms up. When you exhale turn your body to your right so that your knees touch your right elbow.
Actively stretch your left arm creating a twist. Ground your left shoulder blade.
Your abdomen should face your left side whilst your legs should be bent to the right, thus creating opposition and a twist. To exit the asana move your body and bent legs to the centre. Repeat on the other side.
