Roll Up (Level 1)

The second exercise in the series is a top to toe stretch of the back of the body. This variation works on finding that C-shaped curve and strengthening your abdominal muscles. Focus on your breathing to exhale as you draw in Belly to Spine. Try not to overuse the hip flexors or thighs.

Transition: Roll down fully onto the mat, keep the legs bent and arms resting down by your sides, ready to go into the Roll Over (Level 1).
