Shorts weather is right around the corner for many of us, so now is the time to tone those legs!

Here are 3 poses that you can practice at home to help get your legs strong (and flexible) and ready to flaunt this season.

Hold each pose for 5 to 10 steady, full breaths. Increase (or decrease) the amount of time depending on your level.

Repeat each pose at least 3 times.
