1. Warrior II (standing pose)
Strengthens: Butt and thighs; stretches hips
- Stand with legs 3 to 4 feet apart, turning right foot out 90 degrees and left foot in slightly.
- Bring your hands to your hips and relax your shoulders, then extend arms out to the sides, palms down.
- Bend right knee 90 degrees, keeping knee over ankle; gaze out over right hand. Stay for 1 minute.
Make it easier: Leave your hands on your hips and don't bend your knee as deeply; instead, focus on lengthening the spine.
