Side Bend – a beautiful exercise that strengthens the body whilst stretching the waist line and lengthening the side of the whole body, from foot to tips of fingers – add a twist to it to gain a wonderful rotation through the spine.

Swan dive – a challenging exercise to open the front of the body whilst switching on the back of the body – the extension of the spine and hips feels glorious as you rock forward and backwards with a deep and rhythmical breath.
