Side Stretch with Towel

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: Obliques and hip flexors


Step 1: Start in the same position as the chest opener with the towel in your hands.


Step 2: Exhale, reaching over to the side, placing your hand closest to the floor on the mat.


Step 3: Keeping the towel taught, pull your hands away from each other, increasing the stretch in the side of the torso.


Step 4: Hold this position for four breath cycles. Return to starting position on an exhale, focusing on the obliques to bring you back to an erect position.
