PranaVayu Yoga for Leg Toning

Hello everyone,

Spring is getting started here in New England!  I just saw my first crocus of the season and I couldn’t be happier about it.  This last winter was beautiful, but I won’t complain in the least when I am able to finally stow away the snow shovel for the year.

Recently, I’ve overheard more than one yogini mention the need for some extra toning exercises for the legs, so I’ve decided to put together a sequence that you can practice if you don’t have time to make it in for class at Exhale Spa.

The following practice is short and sweet.  It can be done in under 15 minutes and will tone your legs like nobody’s business if you do it four to five days per week. To warm up, do some sun-salutations or a few laps around your house, and then hold each posture in this sequence for ten to 15 full breath cycles.   If you want an extra cardio boost, you can throw in vinyasas between postures (chaturanga, up-dog and down-dog).

Give it a roll and let me know how it goes!

Happy practice!
