Also known as the supine twist, this one-leg crossover stretch is perfect for beginners which focus on gluteus and obliques. It improves spinal mobility and can aid digestion. It is a relaxing pose at the end of a yoga session. In everyday life, your posture will benefit from this antidote to sitting and hunching over work.
Release your right knee to the left, stretching your right arm straight out to the right. For a deeper stretch, use your left hand to gently push your right knee closer to the earth or take your left hand to your outer right foot and extend the leg straight out. Relish in this deep, releasing twist as long as feels good.
