End Side Body Stiffness with This Banana Stretch

Experience the full benefits of lateral flexion with the Bananasana stretch

This powerful stretch targets your side body, stretching the oblique muscles and the intercostal muscles between the ribs. It’s an effective exercise for relieving tightness in the lower back and stimulates vital energy pathways including the gallbladder, heart, and lung meridians. Ensure proper alignment by moving your hips, feet, shoulders, arms, and head in unison as you ease into each side. Also helps calm the nervous system. Hold the pose for up to a few minutes on each side to maximize flexibility and relaxation.
