Lie on the floor with your legs bent and feet at hip-width flat on the floor. Raise your arms straight up with elbow slightly bent and hands facing eachother. Keeping your arms at shoulder width, breathe in to prepare to move, as you breathe out engage your abdominals to lift the head and chest, and continue to sequentially roll the spine up from the floor. The shoulders stay down away from the ears and the arms drawn back into the shoulder. Engage your abdominals and twist your torso to point the hands to the side. Your head follows the direction of the hands. Twist back so your arms are facing forward again and lower yourself to the floor. Repeat, twisting to the opposite side.
