Stand still and open your arms out to the sides so you're in a T position, hands at shoulder level, palms facing down. Gently kick forward with your right leg, then swing it back so your thigh moves behind you. Avoid trying to stretch farther with each kick; stay within a comfortable range of motion. Return your right leg to the start position, then kick it toward the left across your body (right thigh will cross in front of the left). Next, let it swing sideways to the right. Squeeze your abs for balance. Perform 10 gentle kicks to the front, back, and sides with the right leg, then repeat with the left.
