April 10, 2015 2 min read

Looking for some sexy yoga abs? Strengthen your core with these 4 yoga moves (while also toning up the rest of your body):   1. Plank

  • Start on all fours with arms straight, wrists directly under your shoulders, palms flat (though if you find you're putting too much pressure on your wrists, you can curl your fingertips to distribute the weight).
  • Step both feet back to straighten your legs, keeping your feet hip distance apart, toes curled under.
  • Maintain a straight line from the crown of your head through to your heels by engaging your core and quads.
  • Focus on a point just slightly above, and between, your fingertips.
  • Hold for 5 to 10 controlled breaths (for example, 4 count inhale, 4 count exhale).
Rest in child's pose. Repeat 3 more times.   2. Side plank

  • Start in plank pose.
  • Begin shifting your weight onto your right side as your roll onto the outer edge of your right foot.
  • Stack your left foot on top of your right foot and press your right hand into the ground to keep a separation between your ear and shoulder.
  • Stack your left shoulder over your right, stack your hips and engage your core, lifting your hips to create a straight line with your body.
  • You can place your left hand on your hip, or extend it upward.
  • Hold for 5 to 10 controlled breaths.
Return to plank pose and repeat on your left side. Rest in child's pose. Repeat each side 3 more times.   3. Boat summerperezfullboat   summerperezhalfboat  
  • Sit on the floor with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor.
  • Lean back and, with your knees together, lift your feet off the floor to create a V with your body while extending your arms parallel to the floor. (Take the half-boat pose with knees slightly bent, if needed.)
  • Balance on your tailbone, lifting your chest and maintaining a steady gaze straight ahead.
  • Hold for 5 to 10 controlled breaths.
Rest in corpse pose. Repeat 4 more times.   4. Knee-to-nose

  • Start in downward facing dog.
  • Inhale and lift your right leg straight into the air behind you.
  • Then bring your right knee towards your nose as you exhale, rounding your back as you press your hands towards the ground.
  • Hold for a count.
  • Inhale to lift your leg back behind you once again, and exhale to bring it back towards your nose.
After 10-15 repetitions, switch sides. Repeat 3 more times on each side.   If you find this to be too easy, feel free to add more sets or hold for extended counts.
