Straighten your elbows and shift the knees back to an open quadruped position. Rock forward transferring your energy over the WAV. Rock back keeping your gaze on the WAV.

Focus

Acquire ideal energy transfer and axial elongation in a quadruped position. Emphasis is placed on maintenance of dynamic neutral alignment requiring proper capsular movement of both hip and shoulder joints in the sagittal plane, proper core stabilization, fixed and mobile point discernment and effective use of the visual system stimulation. This is a progression from S1-S3 movements.
