PLANK POSE

Plank is a great total body exercise. You'll strengthen your core, legs and arms. Give yourself a challenge and each day see if you can hold 10 seconds longer from the previous day. You'll slowly work your way up to being a plank pro.

Also try forearm plank. Stack shoulder above elbows and make the number "eleven" with your arms.

Kneeling Plank

Release to your knees to focus more on shoulder strength. Ensure your core stays active!

 

CHAIR POSE

You can do SO many exercises in chair pose! The pose itself is great for the legs and core. You can mix in upper body exercises too, like a bicep curl, tricep kickbacks or hammer curl.

This foundational yoga posture is great to hold and focus on your breath. You can also add a single-leg lunge and upper body work, such as upright row or low row.

This pose is all about length. When aligned properly, you'll feel a great side body stretch as you hold and breathe. Add in some side crunches to get even more out of this pose.
