March Mat-ness Challenge Day 7

Today we are going to do the Spine Twist.  For this exercise sit tall on the mat.  Legs can be straight or bent.  Arms will be reaching out to the sides at shoulder height.  Make sure your shoulders are pulled down away from your ears.

Take a breath in before you start the movement.  On the exhale, twist to one side looking over your shoulder.  Stay in this position and exhale 2 more times, trying to rotate slightly more and sit slightly taller with each exhale.  Avoid any bouncy or jerky movements as you do this.  Keep the connection with the abdominal muscles with each rotation.  As you inhale, rotate back to center.  Repeat on the other side.  Complete 3-5 repetitions on each side.
