Begin by laying on the floor, your arms by your sides palms down, and your feet resting on the stability ball. Then engage your core to lift your hips until your body is in a straight line, as shown.

If you can maintain your balance and posture, bring your hands together into a prayer position directly above your chest, and simply hold the position for as long as you can.

This is a great exercise targeted at the Core and the aim is to be able to hold the pose for a little longer each time it’s performed. The use of the ball and the requirement to balance and stabilise your body during the exercise really does maximise its effectiveness.
