Take a step to the left side, and in an effortless or gentle manner, sit into a squat position. Your hands should be raised in a comfortable position. You don’t want to put it under unnecessary discomfort. The best way to achieve this is to have it positioned in front of you. Be mindful not to move your left foot.
Stand back on your feet paying attention to remain in the center. Next, do the same for the right side. One thing you should consider is that your starting position does not matter. What matters is this, if you begin from the left side, then you should change to your right and vice versa.

Gently let your pelvis leave the ground in a raised position and then squeeze it when you feel stiffness.
Gently and slowly return it back to the floor.
