o Sit down with the legs straight, then bend the left knee sideways towards the back and tuck the right foot under the left leg. If you find this difficult keep the legs straight in front.
o Breathe in and straighten the back up, on the out breath turn the right arm round slowly and position the right hand on the floor directly behind you.
o Twist the shoulders round gently to the right and turn the head to face over the right shoulder. Hold this position for about 20 seconds breathing normally through the nose.
o To come out turn the right arm back to the front, straighten the legs and repeat the same on the other side.
