- Try working with just the top or bottom half of your body. In the image above, Susie is working just the top half of her body as she anchors the movement by keeping her belly lifted and tail-bone moving down toward the mat.
- Those with upper back and neck issues may want to work only the lower half of the body.
Try keeping your forehead on the mat and working just the legs. Reach each leg out long, one at a time, far enough that they raise just an inch or two off the mat. Once you are comfortable with that, try doing the alternating leg movements in quicker succession.
