Intended for Thursday, but you can really do it any day you need some twists.
Reclining, knees up, take 10 breaths.
From table, take one arm under the other, and the shoulder toward the floor.
Hands together in front of the heart. Life the back knee if you wish!
Try to hold these few several breaths on each side.
Forearm to the front thigh, or hand to the floor.
Extend through the crown of the head to keep the spine long and straight while twisting.
Twist toward the front leg from the hamstring stretch
Twist toward the front knee, bringing the opposite shoulder toward the floor
Twist towards the top foot, perhaps taking the upper arm to the arch of the foot.
One leg straight the other bent, sole of the foot on the floor, knee pointing, turn away from the knee.
Same as the last pose, but turn toward the knee.
Stretch one leg straight out, use both hands to hold the other foot as you raise it into the air and then straighten the leg.
Hold the raised foot with the opposite hand and twist
Remember to take the top shoulder over as you twist
Soles of the feet together as you lengthen the spine and fold.
Take at least five minutes for Shavasana
