Today we will tackle Jillian Michaels: Yoga Meltdown
Jillian’s yoga uses traditional yoga poses (chair, up & down dog, mountain, lunge, crescent, plank, forward fold, chaturanga, camel), but also works in cardio to get that heart rate elevated… this is no slow flow!
She does go through the moves rather quickly, so even though there is a ‘Level 1’ – it does seem more appropriate for those who have practiced before.
We LOVE it!
After we were warmed up with Jillian, we were ready to tackle Day #6 of the #IndependenceArmy yoga challenge on Instagram ~ CRANE [bakasana]. This one is challenging so we’ll do some practice with a video clip from VentunoYoga.
We’ll also practice crow (similar to crane) ~ this video clip from Sarah Beth yoga explains the differences and practices both. Lastly, we’ll do a few minutes of boat from day #4 because we didn’t practice that long… and runners need a solid core!
Here is Teresa’s best effort as of today…
Inspirational quote of the day…
Many yoga poses take practice and determination. Running a race takes training and determination. But set your eyes on the goal and you CAN achieve it! So we leave you with this,
Happy end of the weekend!
