Seated karate kid Variation

Figure 18-6 illustrates this posture. Executing it is easy:

1. Start in the seated mountain posture and raise your arms forward and up alongside of your ears as you inhale.

2. As you exhale, bend your right knee and raise it upward toward your chest to a comfortable level.

3. Take another breath and then, as you exhale, lower your right knee and your arms back to the seated mountain posture.

4. Repeat Steps 1 through 3 with both arms and your left knee, alternating both of your knees slowly as you raise your arms for a total of 4 to 6 repetitions on each side.

Be careful with this posture if you have a hip replacement. If you aren't sure whether your hips can handle it, check with your doctor first.
