If you're following along to the #YBCtone 30 Day Yoga Tone Up Program, you're going to have to learn to love this little move because it is fantastic for the core strength. Beginners should do number one and two and avoid the third step with the extension of the leg because that's a bit more advanced, but keep working towards it. You can throw this little move in your regular vinyasas if you're feeling like you want to get the heart rate up a bit more and make your core WERK. :)
1. Start in downward dog, go to three legged dog and then shift forward, bringing your shoulders over the wrists and knee into forehead. Aim for a rounded upper back and breathe at least 3 breaths here.
2. Then, spin on the bottom foot so you're facing sideways, lift the top arm and hook the bottom leg's foot outside the thigh of the standing leg. Aim for a few breaths here.
3. Option to extend the lifted leg to work the core a bit more. Aim for a few breaths here.
Then go back to step one, switch legs, and take it to the other side. Go for 3 times each side if you're a beginner, and 5-7 if you're a little more advanced.
