Happy Friday, ladies! Our next pose of the week honoring National Yoga Month is the Crescent position. This pose will help firm your abs, hips, and thighs. Here’s what you do:
Standing with your feet together, toes forward, and arms at sides, inhale and raise arms overhead, reaching your fingertips toward the ceiling. Exhale, and bend forward from your hips, bringing your hands to the floor. Inhale, and as you exhale, step right leg back into a lunge. Inhale, raise your arms overhead, and gaze forward. Hold that position, then return to standing and repeat, stepping left leg back.
You can even make it a little more difficult by starting from your end position, inhale and arch your torso, arms, and head backward, gazing at your fingertips.
