Move of the Day: Standing Side Bend

  
|| SIDE BEND || The Standing Side Bend is a great exercise to stretch the side body as well as to strengthen the side abdominal muscles. This movement feels especially good first thing in the morning to energize the body at the start of the day.

______________________________

1 — Begin standing tall in mountain pose with feet together or feet can be hip width apart if that position feels more comfortable.

2 — Inhale to reach the right arm up towards the ceiling and exhale to take a side bend up and over to the left, as the left arm reaches down the side of the left leg.

3 — Hold stretch for 1-5 breaths and repeat on the left side.
