Stand with hips and shoulders touching a wall. Keep your feet hip-width apart and your ears, shoulders, hips, and feet in a line. If needed, place a rolled-up towel behind the small of your back.
Step forward about
2feet, keeping your back against the wall. Slide down into a sitting position. Don’t let your hips go below your knees.
5seconds, then slide up. As you get stronger, hold the position longer.
