Open Book Dissociation – Block

  • HOW: Begin by lying on your side with your knees bent up and a block in between your legs. Place your bottom arm on the ground straight out from your shoulder. Place your top arm on top of that arm with your palms together. Rotate the top arm up and over as you rotate only the upper half of your body. The goal is to place the top arm on the other side looking at it while your hips remain in the starting position facing the other way. Return to the starting position and repeat. 
  • FEEL: You should feel a stretch in your mid back and torso region. 
  • COMPENSATION: Keep your legs on the ground and don’t let them twist up with your upper body and back.
