Ok, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but your obliques (the diagonal muscles that cross from the bottom of the ribs to the top of your pelvis) are in charge of making sure your ribs are properly aligned over your pelvis. If one side is stronger than the other, it can create a line of pull that will rotate or laterally flex your spine to one side, and over time create major imbalances not only through the core but up into the shoulders and down into the hips and feet.

Keep your obliques working hard with this Yoga Tune Up® variation on the classic Navasana or Boat Pose, done here on an angle to build oblique power! You can also find this pose on the 10 Minute Quick Fix for Lower Back.
