The plank pose appears in many forms of exercise, and in yoga, it is an all-encompassing basic pose. Planks raise your heart rate in just a few seconds. Make sure the wrists are aligned just below the shoulders and pull the shoulder blades away from each other. Evenly engage the quadriceps and core, ensuring your hips don’t sink in or sit high. Try to hold the position for 30-60 seconds.
Adho Mukha Savasana
Perhaps the most popular yoga pose, the descending dog builds the muscles of the back and upper arm while stretching the legs and lateral body. Start at the hands and knees, bend the toes and lift the hips up and back. Extend the chest toward the thighs to create an inverted “V” shape with the body. Bend the knees slightly if necessary.
The high lunge position is for balance, strengthening and flexibility. Due to the diverse nature of the situation, it will challenge the mind while burning calories. Step forward in a lunge, check to make sure the front knee is aligned with the ankle (making a 90-degree angle at the knee) and that you are on the ball of the back foot with both feet pointing forward. Next, try to distribute your body weight evenly between both feet and engage the rear quad. If you feel awkward, make a wider stance with the foot to broaden your center of gravity.
Building strength in the legs, especially the quadriceps and quadriceps, the chair pose is a friendly pose that gets the muscles going quickly. Bring the feet and knees together, then bend the knees and sink the hips. Keeping your back flat (without dropping your chest), look forward, aligning your knees over your toes. For more calorie-busting intensity, engage your upper body by lifting the arms up and in line with the back (next to the ears).
The boat pose helps burn calories by challenging the abdominal and lower back muscles. From a seated position, begin to bend back while slowly raising the legs. The hands can either stick to the back of the thighs or extend them towards the legs. Elongate through the collarbones and make sure the neck is in a neutral position with the spine. You may start to shake literally from the heart, but focus your attention on your breath.
