Method 2 of 4: Opposite Arm and Leg Reaches
1 Prepare. The breathing is the same as in the previous exercise, but here we will perform the movement in 2 breaths.
2 Inhale to prepare. As you exhale, lift the right hand and left knee off the floor, fully extending both out in opposite directions.
3 Inhale to return to all fours again. Then exhale, and do the same on the other side.
4 Repeat. Repeat this six times in total - three times each side.
5 Pay particular attention to the supporting arm and leg. Do not allow them to collapse taking the body out of line.
