Supine Spinal Twist (modified) Steps:

Step 1:
Start by lying down in Savasana (Corpse Pose).

Step 2:
Bend at the knees, bring them tight into the chest, and wrap arms around the shins.

Step 3:
Extend the hips and knees to 90 degrees so shins are parallel with the floor and extend the arms out to the sides (in line with shoulders with palms facing up).

Step 4:
Reach the right arm across to the outside of the left knee.

Step 5:
Keeping the head and shoulders in contact with the floor at all times, lower the legs to the right side (creating a twist of the torso).

Hold the posture for 5 to 10 breaths and then return to starting position.

Step 7:
Repeat the exercise lowering both legs to the left side.
