To begin, extend your legs one at a time until you’re in this position. You can hold higher
up onto your ankles, behind your knees or in between on your calves. And inhale to roll
back, initiating with your lower AB contraction and then come up on the exhale and extending
through the spine once you hit the top. Keep your arms straight the whole time. Go back
and exhale to come forward., extending through your spine. Again, inhale to go back, and
exhale to come forward and relax. This is a spinal massage. Similar to rolling like
a ball and to seal puppy. If you have a hard time keeping your legs straight, either modify
them with slightly bent knees or work on practicing seal puppy and rolling like a ball.
