Here is what one of my ladies had to say after yoga class this week:
After two years of training with you I have noticed my legs and bum changing shape. While this was not necessarily my goal it is nice to feel more toned. My pant size has not changed but they are roomier in the legs and my backside is noticeably smaller.
Coincidentally the June Five this month are all about the legs (and butt)! Whether your goals include stress reduction, weight loss, increased strength or generally feeling better yoga can help! Contact Anne today to set up your consultation or check here for Fluid’s updated class schedule.
Here is Rick Demonstrating Plank Rows, one of the October Five Exercises. With this move you strengthen your upper body, core, back, legs, just about everything!
Notice how he stabilizes his back and hips while lifting one hand.
This is the most challenging variation of this move (believe me – he is making it look easy).
You can also do this sans weights. Start in a plank position with knees down. Make sure your ear, shoulder, hip and knee make one line (look in a mirror if you need to). Now slowly lift one hand and lower it back down. Now try this with a 5 or 8 lb weight. In the photos Rick is holding the weights the whole time. If this bothers your hands or wrists place your hands flat on the ground instead and pick up one weight at a time.
