Stand tall with back straight, feet wider than the hips, and arms in line with the shoulders (like a "T"), palms down. Turn your right toes out to the side and your left toes pointed forward.
Lean to the right as if reaching your right fingertips towards the right wall. From there, bend at the side of the waist, allowing your right hand to fall naturally, resting on your knee, shin, ankle or the floor.
Breathe deeply and hold for 10-30 seconds. Repeat on opposite side.
Stretch to the point of "mild discomfort," not to the point of pain. Never bounce. Keep your arms long and open your chest towards the wall in front of you.
