Day 2 Challenge - Seated Side Bend

Today's pose is Seated Side Bend.

Seated Side Bend is a very good stretching exercise for the sides of your body. Your body should lengthen rather than stretch. The shoulder of the arm raised should be behind so as to open the front of the body. The hips should never leave the floor.

Be careful with this pose if you have a problem with knees, hips or shoulders.
Sitting on the edge of a folded blanket will let you sit more comfortably for the pose and ease the strain on the knees and hips. Keep a folded blanket under your feet will take the pressure of your feet. If you cannot sit on the ground, perform this pose in an armless chair.

Go watch the video at Yoga Bear website to continue with the daily challenge.
