DETAILS: Inhale - send the breath into the back and sides of the ribs , lengthening in the spine from the crown of the head all the way out the tailbone. Exhale - draw your belly button in toward your spine . Imagine the muscle wrapping around the midsection like a pair of spanx. Lift one leg off the mat. Not too high - think length rather than height. Inhale tap it down.
