1. The closed angle
Reduces stress, improves blood circulation: Sit comfortably on the floor and press the soles of your feet together. Then support the hands behind the buttocks and keep the torso long and straight. When you have found the right position and your back stays straight, embrace your feet. Pull apart toes slightly, hold position and breathe deeply.
2. The rotation cross-legged
Improves digestion: Sit cross-legged and make the upper body long. Then with your left hand grab your right knee or thigh. Put your right hand behind your butt. With each inhalation pull the spine long, turn with each exhalation a little further to the right. Leave the chin over the sternum. Hold the position for a few breaths and then repeat on the other side.
3. Training of the upper abdominal muscles
From the supine position slightly lift the upper body and hold. The heels push into the ground. Slowly move the upper body back, but do not drop your back and head. Repeat several times.
4. Training of the entire core musculature and activation of balance and coordination
Go into the hover seat and straddle your legs: brace with your arms or fold your arms over your chest. Important: The upper body remains upright, holding the abdominal tension, let the shoulders deep and pay attention to a straight cervical spine.
