Konasana: Angle pose

Stand in erect posture with the feet around 2-3 feet apart. Keeping the legs fixed, bend only the upper part of the body above the waist on either sides. The arm is stretched out at full length and kept closed to the ear, palms inwards.
Breathing in 2 counts, start bending side wards, retain the breath for 4 counts and start breathing out and come to the starting position in 2 counts. Do this with both the arms. Can be done 3-4 times each side.
This helps in giving a lateral stretch to the vertebral column. This also helps in building the upper abdomen muscles.
