Day 212- Teaser Starting at Table Top and Moving to Full Vee

This exercise is still another preparation for the full teaser, but we are getting to the point in which the legs do straighten. YAY!  Each step is a good one

To do this exercise you will need a mat.  Start by lying on your back with your feet in a tabletop position.  Inhale into the back of your ribs.  Then exhale as you reach your hands towards your knees and lift your head neck and shoulders.  Continue exhaling as you finish rolling through your spine and straighten your legs.  Inhale at the top and then exhale as you bend your knees and roll through each vertebra to get back to the ground.

Things to think about
If you have osteoporosis, try this exercise from a seated position.  Find the tabletop Vee and then straighten your legs.  Repeat this movement six-eight times.

There are a lot of magic spots in this exercise.  It is important to get the head, neck, and shoulders in the air before you straighten the legs.  On the way down it is important to get the sacrum to the ground before you bend your knees.
