As many of you know, part of the reason for our trip to Fiji was so that I could teach a Wellness Retreat at the resort. This consisted of twice daily Yoga & Pilates sessions which I was lucky to lead with both amazing students and stunning views. We practiced on decks surrounding by the rainforest, out on the beach and on cliff top decks. It was beyond amazing.
Here are a few shots of a quick routine I like to do to help wake me up in the mornings.
Start out for a good few minutes in downward facing dog.
One at a time lift each leg behind you, you can also choose to follow the lift by bending the knee and stacking the hips one on top of the other and going into flip dog.
High Plank with hips lifted above the heart (great for the abs & buns)
Low Plank or Low Push Up (I suggest holding this for a few seconds to really build up those triceps)
Upward Facing Dog (after this I suggest pressing back into downward facing dog then leading into the warrior series below)
Standing Head to Knee
Standing Bow Pose
Following this series I will often finish with tree pose with a long hold and then some mat stretching. If you run through a few times it will get your heart rate up and definitely burn some calories.
Happy Wednesday - Make it a great workout day!
