SEATED SIDE BEND POSE INSTRUCTIONS
1. Start in easy pose with your back straight and arms relaxed.
2. Reach your arms up and overhead, and interlace your fingers.
3. Hold the pose for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Draw your belly button in toward the spine, roll your shoulder blades back and down, and keep your shoulders relaxed and away from the ears. Take deep breaths and feel the tension fading away.
The seated side bend stretches the shoulders and back, and strengthens the core. This pose promotes calm, releases tension from the upper body and improves concentration and focus.
Hip, back or shoulder injury.
