Side Fierce

What it tones: Thighs, tush, and shoulders

How to do it:

  • From Burning Low Lunge pose, lower your hands to the floor, step your right foot back, and take a Vinyasa (Four-Limbed Staff to Up Dog to Down Dog). Inhale to step or hop both feet forward between the hands, and exhale to fold over straight legs. Inhale to rise up to a standing position.
  • Make sure your feet are together, and as you inhale, bend the knees and squat down, raising the arms into the air. Exhale to cross your left elbow over to your outer right knee. Press your palms together, and actively push your bottom elbow against your thigh to lift and rotate your chest up, increasing the twist. Pull your left hip back slightly, making sure both knees are parallel.
  • Stay in Side Fierce for five breaths.
