Monday Moves: Balancing Stick

Balancing Stick or in yoga terms Tuladandasana! In this Monday Move you're working your hips, booty, and thighs!

Grab your yoga mat and lay it out vertically. Begin with your feet together in a parallel position and arms by your side standing vertically at the back of your yoga mat.

 

Bring your arms overhead and clasp your hands together but leave your index fingers unclasped. Point your right toes out in front of you, hold in your abdominals tight as you put all your weight into your right foot and lift your left foot off the floor.

 

Bring your torso forward into a flat back position and bring your left leg up in alignment so you're in a T shape. Hold this position for 20 seconds. Gently come out and repeat on the other side. Do each side three times total.

Note: It's all about the abdominals in this posture in order to keep your balance. Work it Bennerfitters!
