To increase the stretch, you can "crawl your fingers" and exhale at the end of the stretch. Then reverse the rotation and rotate the other direction, exhaling at the top. You can use your eyes to increase the stretch
 
  • FEEL: You should feel a nice and gentle stretch in the middle region of your back when you perform this exercise.
