Try the Mermaid Stretch For Your Core!

The Pilates mermaid side stretch lengthens and opens the side body. This variation on one knee makes it a more intense stretch and adds a bit of a workout for the obliques. This exercise has an inner flow that uses the breath to deepen the stretch. You can use just your body weight or add light weights. Repeat 2-3 times, then switch sides.
