Reclining Spinal Twist

When your back is sore and tired, few things are more soothing and effective than a good spinal twist. This spinal twist will feel absolutely amazing, and you might even hear some cracks in your back!

  • After moving through One Knee to Chest on both sides, bring your right knee back up and then cross the right knee over your torso to the left as you extend the left leg to the floor.
  • Extend your arms out in a 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.
