Reclining Spinal Twist

  • After hugging the knees into the chest, cross the left knee over your torso to the right as you extend the right leg to the floor.
  • Extend your arms out in T position, and turn your head to the left.
  • Hold here for at least five breaths, feeling your spine lengthen and twist. You may even hear some "cracks."
  • Use your abs to lift your knee back to center. Hug both knees in and then switch sides, crossing the right knee over the torso to the left side. Gaze to the right, relaxing for another five breaths. Then hug both knees into the chest.
