The Standing Side Bend pose also begins with the Mountain Pose. This pose lengthens the body from your toes to fingers. This pose can stretch and strengthen the back, flank and oblique muscles. It can tone the waist and stomach. Side bends are also good for people who are new to the practice of yoga.
How to perform this pose:
- Stand with your ankles crossed. If you prefer, you can stand with your feet under your hips.
- Put your right arm up and grip your right wrist with your left hand.
- Easily pull your right hand to the left.
- Hold the position for six to eight breaths, breathing deeply.
- Uncross your legs. Repeat on other side.
