Seated Spinal Twist

Twisting your torso to the side stretches your spine and can help you relieve tension and pain in the back. Sit on your yoga mat with legs extended and back straight. Start by bringing your right arm out to your side. Swing your left arm slowly to the right side of your body and twist, bringing your head back and facing as far behind you as possible.
