Move your leg perpendicularly upwards in the air. Inhale and lower your leg. Repeat this step 10 times.
Remain in the same posture and perform thigh lifts. Start by taking your leg upwards, bend your knees and put your feet to the ground. Hips and toes should face the forward direction. Bring your leg forward and hold the ankles while pressing the legs against your chest. Come back to the previous posture and repeat the same procedures.
