1. Stand up or sit on a bench and interlace your fingers behind your back.

For people who have scoliosis (sideways curvature of the spine) the torso stretch is a good stretch for the opposite side of the curvature. For example, for a left-sided scoliosis, stretch the right side.

2. Lift your arms up behind you until you feel a stretch in the arms, shoulders, and chest.

3. Keep your chest out and chin in.

This is a good stretch to do at any time, especially if you are at a desk and find yourself slumping.
