  1. Move the torso in a circular motion like a belly dancer, using your heart centre to draw big circles, grind your hips, trying not to move the head and shoulders. Inhale as you rotate forward. Lean over your right knee, arch your spine slightly, slowly move chin away from the chest and grind towards your left knee.

  1. Exhale as you rotate back. Once you go over the left knee start to round your spine slightly and slowly bring your chin towards the chest and bring your body to the right to come back.
