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.

The isometric holds and elongating poses will help to stretch and nurture your muscles. This sequence is great for any level yogi to change up her routine and add some sweat to her practice. Let's get started!

1. Table top

  Coded PR

Keep your spine neutral and begin to tune into your body.

2. Cat and cow

 Cat/Cow Coded PR

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.

3. High plank

  Coded PR

This is an entire body core pose. Every muscle in the body is working to hold the body weight up. The core is the main stabilizer so it engages to keep the body's balance first.

  Coded PR

This is a great stretch for your hamstrings and shoulders.
