Video Transcription

To perform the side bend, stand with feet hip width apart, bend at the waist, slowly and rhythmically moving from side to side. Only move as far as comfort allows, letting your hands slide down towards the floor, pausing, and then slowly coming back and returning to the opposite side.

To progress the stretch, reach the arm above the head. This will elongate the spine, thus allowing for a stronger stretch through the trunk.
