What it tones: arms, shoulders, abs, and thighs
How to do it:
- From Quarter Dog, lift your elbows up, coming back into Downward Facing Dog. Step both feet together so your big toes are touching.
- Move your right hand over to the left six or so inches so it's at the upper centre of your mat. Step your right foot forward two inches and plant the sole of your right foot firmly on the mat so your toes are pointing to the left.
- Roll open to your right side and lift your left hand off the mat. Raise your left leg up into the air. Stay here, balancing on your right hand and foot. Keep your shoulders, spine, and hips in one straight line, and gaze toward your left hand.
- Hold here for five deep breaths, keeping your core strong and the pose steady.
