Tone Up Tip: Beach Yoga Workout

by

[tps_header]The practice of yoga is thousands of years old and unites movement, breath and consciousness. It will leave you feeling more grounded, centered, and peaceful, resulting in a mind/body experience unlike any other. Today, I’m bringing you a practice that can be done before or after a nice walk on the beach or on its own. Each move can be done individually or linked together to create a longer flow. Begin with 5 breaths or reps of the movement in each pose, and work up to 10. Enjoy![/tps_header]

[tps_title]Downward Facing Dog/Plank Flow[/tps_title]

Begin in the top of a push up position, with the hands beneath the shoulders, belly drawn in, and legs stretched back and engaged. Inhale here in plank. As you exhale, lift your hips to make an inverted V shape. Keep your hands and feet where they are and press the thighs back and heels down.  Inhale forward to plank, exhale back to downward facing dog. Connect the breath and movement, so you are moving as you breathe, and breathing as you move. Complete 5-10 reps.
