Corkscrew and Hip Circle Exercises
This exercise builds on the principles of the Mat Work: Supine Spine Twist but incorporates a longer lever (the legs), intensifying the hip flexor work and the abdominal work, particularly that of the oblique abdominals.

Side Over and Basic Swan Exercises
This is an excellent exercise for teaching precise lateral flexion and correct alignment, thereby laying a foundation to later perform the same movement in more challenging positions on other pieces of apparatus.
