This exercise is a variation of the kneeling side kick.
To do this exercise you will need a mat. Start kneeling and then lean over to one hand so that you are supported by your knee and your hand. Inhale as the leg floats into the air, and then exhale as you circle the leg back and down. Inhale as you circle the leg forward and exhale as you repeat 8-10 times.
Things to think about
It will be difficult to keep the hip still as you are circling the leg. Be sure to line the pelvis up above the thigh this alignment will help free up the hip.
If the bottom wrist is having trouble with this position, you can make a fist to support the arm.
