Strong & Serene

Sit on the floor with a large, firm pillow underneath your right buttock. Bend your knees, point them to the left and rest your legs on the floor, heels close to your left hip. Place your left hand on your left shin and your right hand on the floor near your right hip. Sit up straight and draw your abs in [A] (see previous slide for photo). Inhale, and as you exhale, lean your torso to the left and reach your right arm up and over to the left as you look down toward your left hand, keeping your neck in line with your spine [B]. Hold for 1 minute, breathing normally, then change legs and switch sides. Promotes torso and hip flexibility, relieving low-back discomfort.
