Begin standing with feet hip-width apart, knees soft, torso upright, and spine neutral. Place the right hand on the right hip or tuck the right arm behind the lower back (pictured). Extend your left arm overhead, hand in line with the shoulder, arm next to the ear, and palm facing inside.
Keeping lower body stationary and moving from the hips, lean over to the right side, allowing your upper body and arm to follow. Bend the left elbow slightly and reach overhead and to the side. You should feel this stretch in your left oblique and hip.Hold for 15-30 seconds, return to center, and switch sides.Repeat 2-3 times.
