1. Lying Tailbone Twist

Lie on your back with one leg straight and the other bent with your foot flat on the floor.

Allow your bent knee to fall over your opposite leg while turning the shoulder on the side of your bent leg in the opposite direction from your bent leg.

Gently push into the stretch and feel for tension that you can access while stretching.

You may feel a "pop" as your s i joint falls back into place.

Repeat this entire sequence on the other side of your body.

Repeat this entire exercise as often as you desire. It's a great stretch and it generally feels good!

In this exercise it's usually ideal to have the bottom leg held out straight. While chatting with you on the video my lower leg is a bit bent, which makes the technique a bit less effective.
