An nice easy gentle twist for these lazy Summer days!
Start with your feet wide apart parallel to the edge of your mat.
Slowly on an exhale slide your hands down the back of your legs to the floor (use a block if your hans don’t reach).
Place the left hand on the floor and twist slowly on an exhale to the right. Try to keep the pelvis level and steady so that the twist is in the upper body. Stay here for five breaths or longer. As an extension it may feel nice to take the right hand to the left leg as demonstrated by Paula here.
Repeat on the other side.
Come back up nice and slowly keeping the chin tucked in until you are fully upright.
