Saw is a lovely exercise that marries flexion and rotation. Keep your hips stable and level as you rotate, and then flex your spine as you reach your opposite hand towards your baby toe. Don’t be afraid to bend your knees or elevate your pelvis if you have tight hamstrings. If you feel your legs sliding forward on the mat as you rotate and reach, you are moving your pelvis. Aim for a smaller range of motion with lovely stable hips to get the most out of this exercise.
