Start off on your hands and knees. Activate your core by pulling the belly button to the spine. Tuck your toes and lift your knees off the floor. Make a straight line with your body from your shoulders through your hips to your heels. Press the back of your shoulders blades up to the ceiling, doming slightly the upper back. Tuck your coccyx (tailbone) slightly toward the chest. Gaze slightly in front. Cross your left foot over your right foot, allowing your right hip to twist to point to the floor. Push back up, driving your hips back and up toward the ceiling in an inverted ‘V’ position. Aim to create a straight line with your spine from hands to hips.

When twisting your right hip to point to the floor squeeze your glutes to prevent your hip sagging down.

This exercise has also been called the Wundatwist.
