Tension Tamer

Torso Tension Tamer

Release stress from your core and back with this twisting pose.

-Torso Tension Tamer: Stand directly in front of a sturdy chair with your knees slightly bent. Place your left foot on the seat and wrap your right hand around your left knee. Exhale and twist your torso to the left, pressing your hand on your knee for added resistance. Stand tall, twisting further with each breath. Take 2 or 3 breaths or as many as you need and then switch legs. Now, wrap your left hand around your right knee and exhale as you twist your torso to the right. As you press your hand on your knee, feel the kinks in your lower back loosen. Stand taller as you inhale and twist further, feeling the tension in your torso release.
