Slowly lower both knees to the left. Rest them on the ground and turn your head to the right.
Hold here for at least five breaths, feeling your spine lengthen and twist. You may even hear some "cracks."
Use your abs to lift your knees back to center. Uncross your legs and cross them the opposite way, with your left knee on top. Slowly lower both knees to the right, and look over your left shoulder.
After five breaths, release, and head into your final pose.
