Workout from Anywhere Wednesday: Yoga Edition

It is freezing and snowy in Pittsburgh today, and we’re noticing a lot of our gym regulars are opting to work from home instead of braving this weather. We fully support that decision, but want you to get a workout in!

This week we’re setting you up with a little yoga flow that you can do anywhere. It incorporates strength, flexibility, and endurance, so you’re getting three components of training in just one workout.

All you’ll need is a little bit of space and a mat if you have one. Go through the entire flow 5 to 10 times.

  1. Downward Facing Dog (jump to the front of your mat)
  2. Forward Fold
  3. Halfway Lift
  4. Mountain
  5. Forward Fold
  6. Halfway Lift
  7. High to Low Push Up
  8. Upward Facing Dog
  9. Downward Facing Dog

(Repeat 5-10x)

  1. Crescent Lunge (Right Leg)
  2. Left Knee Down, Straighten (Repeat 5-10x)
  3. Right Hand Down/Twist Left
  4. Left Hand Down/Twist Right
  5. High to Low Push Up
  6. Upward Facing Dog
  7. Downward Facing Dog
  8. Crescent Luge (Left Leg)
  9. Right Knee Down, Straighten (Repeat 5-10x)
  10. Left Hand Down/Twist Right
  11. Right Hand Down/Twist Left
  12. High to Low Push Up
  13. Upward Facing Dog
  14. Downward Facing Dog

(Repeat 5-10x)
