For the last week of October we will be performing a Partner Twist Stretch. This movement will stretch your outside hip muscles and also the lower back to mid back muscles.
If you have difficulty getting up and down from the floor, please skip this week’s stretch. If you have any hip or low back issues, please consult your physician before performing.
How to perform:
*Things to remember: place your right hand close to your body as this will assure that you remain sitting tall. Engage your abdominal muscles by drawing your belly button toward your spine. This action will protect the low back as well as assist in getting more stretch in the twist. Point your left toes to the sky to keep the leg from rolling outward.
