Set-Up: Lay on your back with the hands overhead and the feet hip width apart.

Action: In a diagonal pattern reach one arm across the body, while maintaining the opposite arm overhead. Reaching across the body follow the hand with the eyes and head continuing to rotate the head through the entire roll to the stomach. The lower extremity remains relaxed on the floor until the upper body pulls it over.

Return: To return to the starting position extend the arm out to the side lift the hand and arm, following the hand with the eyes and head through the entire roll returning to the back.
