Lie down on the floor keeping your legs straight up over your hips at a 90 degree angle. Slowly lower your legs as low as you can without touching the floor, but make sure not to lift your lower back. Then raise your legs to the starting position. Do this exercise 20 times and take a break for 10 seconds.
Lie face down on the floor and lift your body up onto your toes and forearms while bending your elbows at a 90 degree angle. Hold on to this position for 15 seconds and release. Keep your core tight and your legs straight. Repeat this 5 times taking 5 seconds rest between each reps.
Lie down with your back pressed against the floor. Bring your hands behind your head. Bring your left knee in towards your chest and touch it with your right elbow. Straighten your right leg out to about a 45-degree angle to the ground while turning your upper body to the left. At the same time, rotate your top half so your left elbow goes to your right knee, then switch to the other side. Make sure your rib cage is moving and not just your elbows. Do three sets of 20 reps.
Sit on the floor with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground. While balancing on your pelvic bone, extend your legs outwards to form a V-shape. Now extend your arms straight passing your knees. Hold this position for five slow breaths and return back to the initial position. Repeat this five times.
Seated spinal twist
Sit on the floor in staff pose and cross your right leg over you left leg. Place your right hand next to your hip and your left hand on the knee. Turn your torso to the right and look over your right shoulder. Inhale deeply to lengthen your spine and release. Keep this breathing pattern for five deep breaths and then switch to the other side.
