Begin in a seated position with the legs bent at the knees and held in toward your chest. Keep your feet together and toes flat on the floor. Place the hands behind you, making sure to keep them slightly wider than the length of your shoulders. Keeping the torso lifted, twist the legs to the right. The knees will roll to the side, angling down toward the ground. Press your hands firmly into the floor behind you. Avoid allowing the lower back to sink down or tuck under. Twist to the left, continuing to lift tall in the upper body. Keep your position tight and close, with the knees folded in toward the body and tiptoes light on the mat. Twist to the right one last time, keeping the heels close to the gluteals. Kick both legs up two times, aiming for the corner behind you. Bend both knees and return the toes on the mat, ready to repeat to the other side.
