Sit on the edge of a chair, with your hands as close to your bum as possible. Lift yourself off the chair, straightening your arms, and move your feet slightly forward, only putting weight on your heels. Bending and engaging your arms, lower yourself so that your back is close to the side of the chair, until your arms are parallel to the floor. 

Breathe in to lower and out to raise yourself up.

Variation: Move your feet forward to make it harder, or move them closer to you to make the exercise easier.
