If You Lift Weights, This Yoga Sequence Is a Must

Tipover Tuck

  • From Half-Bound Squat Prep, release your left hand to the floor in front of you. Walk your feet in so they are hip distance apart.
  • Slowly straighten the legs, keeping the torso folded on the thighs.
  • Interlace your fingers behind you, pressing the heels of the palms together in a double fist. Actively pull your hands away from your shoulders to increase the stretch in your chest.
  • Lean your weight forward into the toes, holding for five breaths.

Toe Breaker Pose

  • From Tipover Tuck, release the hands and kneel on the floor with the toes tucked.
  • Slowly lower your pelvis to your heels. You can even lean back a little to increase the stretch in the quads.
  • Breathe deeply for five breaths. If this is too painful, put less weight on the heels by lifting the hips off the heels.
