The next exercise I'll be demonstrating is called an oblique twist. You can only do this exercise if you are not experiencing diastasis. If you are not experiencing diastasis go ahead and lie flat on your mat. Hands behind your head, if you do not feel light headed, go ahead and lift using your abdominals, keeping them really tight, try not to arch your back. Exhale as you lift your right shoulder over towards your left knee and come all the way back down. Exhale as you lift left shoulder to right knee, come all the way back down. Usually you may do this a bit faster, but for you I want you to take your time, think about your breathing, exhale, inhale, lower. Exhale lift, inhale lower. Exhale, inhale. Very good, squeeze and lower. Exhale and inhale. Good. And exhale. Perfect. Go ahead and lift the shoulder blade off of the mat and come all the way back down. you want to try to get that shoulder blade up again you don't want your lower back to arch during these exercises, so pay specific attention to your lower back and lower. Exhale and inhale. Exhale and inhale, try not to pull your neck. Take your time, if it really starts to burn you can stop and rest for a second or you can stop completely.
