TIP: For dynamic (repetitive poses) breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. For holding poses breathe in and out through your nose.
WHY This stretching move tones the butt and upper thighs and balances the left-right tension in the lower back to release that area. HOW Lie on your belly with your legs together. Prop yourself up on your forearms with your elbows straight below your shoulders. Push down through your forearms and lift your collarbone. Inhale. Exhale and lift your right leg off the ground (keeping the back of the knee straight). Hold, inhale again and extend the leg out to the right as you exhale. Inhale as you bring it back to the centre. Do 3 slow reps on each side, then 3 more on the harder side.
