Suggested Grade Level:
Lay on back on the mat
Bend knees and place feet flat on the floor
Bend arms and place hands on floor beside head with thumbs next to ears
Push off floor equally with the hands and feet upward. Push stomach toward the ceiling as if someone was pulling up with a string from your belly button.
Look back at the floor with the head so the back will bend
Hold for a few seconds and slowly lower the body to the floor. Tuck knees to chest and hold with hands, in a tuck position, and rock and roll back and forth to stretch the back out.
