Description of the theme:

Many lessons may work primarily with the extensors or with actions of extending: this lesson theme is the set of lessons in which you lie face-down, typically with hands one on top of the other under your forehead or cheek, and you lift your head with your arm, and lift same or opposite side legs. Both legs may be long; one may be bent up alongside you; or one or both may be bent at the knee so the feet face the ceiling.
