  • reach one arm between your knees and hold onto the outside of your opposite foot
  • lean back, rounding through your upper back until you feel a gentle stretch behind your shoulder blade.
  • to increase the stretch you can slowly push your foot down towards the floor like you’re hitting the gas.
