Use a block for a better side stretch

Often, we cheat when bending from side to side, and we don’t get the full benefit from this dynamic stretch. Holding a block between your hands will help to target your side torso muscle more effectively in this side bend. 1. Stand upright on a flat, level surface with your feet together. Grasp a yoga block between your hands. Be sure that the block is between the palms of your hands and not just your fingers. Straighten your arms so the block is above your head and your upper arms are near your ears. Point your fingertips up and relax your shoulders away from your ears.
