Lying Spinal Twist
One of my all-time favorite poses, this incredibly relaxing twist stretches every muscle in your back. Once you complete this spinal twist, return to Knee-to-Chest and repeat with your other leg.
- From Knee-to-Chest, use your opposite hand to gently push your top knee across your body, twisting your spine as you do. extend your arms out in T-position.
- Extend your arms into a T-position and turn your head to the opposite side of your bent knee. You can increase the stretch by crossing the left knee over the right thigh.
- Hold here for at least 10 seconds, feeling your spine lengthen and twist. You may even hear some "cracks."
- Use your abs to lift your knees back to center. Repeat the sequence, going from Knee-to-Chest to Lying Spinal Twist, using your other leg.
