Seated Heart Opener
This stretch will create space in the chest and belly, which may ease belly cramps, and can be done on the floor or while sitting in a chair.
- Begin sitting on your heels. Lean back and place your palms flat on the floor about eight to 10 inches behind you so your fingertips are pointing away.
- Press your hands firmly into the ground and lift your chest as high as you can. Arch your back and push your hips into your heels. To increase the stretch, lower your head behind you, stretching through your throat and the front of your chest.
