Seated Spine Stretch

HOW: Start in a seated position with your legs spread about shoulder width apart (or the width of a mat) and sit up tall and upright. Reach your arms straight out in front of you at shoulder height. From here, pull your belly button in as you roll down and reach forward, then roll back up the starting position. You can modify your legs by bending your knees and placing the bottoms of your feet together.  FEEL: You should feel a stretch in your spine as you reach forwards.  COMPENSATION: Try to not allow motion in your lower body, focus your breathing and motion in your spine.
