Twist with leg stretch

8. Keep your right foot up on the support. Your left leg is firm and straight with your foot pressing down into the ground. Place your right hand on the right side of the waist and the left hand on the right leg. On an exhale, lift the belly and turn the waist to the right. Lengthen the sides of the torso and let the shoulders drop down. Your eye gaze may follow the direction of the turn, but do not twist the neck forcibly. Breathe easily. After you feel the muscles of the side torso begin to release, come slowly back to the original, forward-facing position. This exercise stretches the sides of the torso and releases in the hip.
