9 yoga poses you can do anywhere

This sequence is designed to challenge your entire body in a low-impact way, but still leave your muscles tired and your body and mind invigorated.

The cardio bursts throughout this routine will give you a healthy sweat and elevate your heart rate, which aids in fat loss, especially in difficult areas like your stomach and love handles.

Cat/Cow

This pose massages and loosens the fibers around the spine. We are standing upright or laying down most of the time, so we rarely move our spine in different ranges of motion. This is a perfect supported pose for that.
