Knees to chest
Bend your knees and lie on your back. Lift one knee higher and try pulling it gently into your chest for 5 seconds before bringing your knee back down. Repeat this for 5 or more times on each knee. If you feel comfortable enough, try gripping both legs and bring them into your chest. Try rolling up for a second by pushing onto your back before quickly rolling back down. Repeat these three times.
Stay in the same position as before (lay down on your back) and bend your knees, leaving about 20cm of space between them. Tighten your stomach muscles until your back is flat on the floor and hold this position for 5 seconds before releasing the muscles. Repeat this for 5 times before moving on.
Put your hands on your head and lie on your back until you reach a comfortable position. Tightly bend your knees and roll them slowly to one side, keeping your feet on the floor. Try and hold this position for 10 seconds before repeating 3 times on each side.
