Hi, my name is Tanya, and I'm an instructor at Gold's Gym. I want to show you a few poses that are really kind of related to yoga and they're quite challenging but so rewarding. Okay, I'm going to start off with a dancer's pose. That's one of the hardest ones I can think of. And I think they are pretty great. So what I want you to do is stand. I'm going to stand to the side so you can see exactly what I am doing. So you want to pull the core in cause it's a balancing exercise. And balancing is very hard to achieve but you can do it. So I'm here. Grab one foot. So my thumb is right against my big toe. I want you to reach the arm all the way up. And here's what I want you to do, shift your torso forward. And as you do so press your foot into that hand. And it's dancer's pose so it's core strength. And I'm just holding this pose. Hold it as long as you can comfortably hold it. And then just release out. And do the other side. It's good stuff. Alright so face me. Another yoga pose, again you got to have core strength. Focus, tell yourself you can do it. And I'm starting with a tree pose here. So it's not too bad. You want to place your foot as high as you can get it. So that's kind of the level one. You want something a little more challenging take two fingers. Going to wrap my fingers around my big toe. Pinch my side. So I've got my leg you can hold it here to you kind of get that balance. Then you could extend the leg out on angle. You can even take it out to the side. Or hold it straight in front of you. And that's amazing. That's core strength people at it's best. Alright so another one I'm going to come on down to the floor. The crow. Alright pretty good stuff. And you got to trust yourself, tell yourself you can do it. So you want to have hands wide. Going to take them on the mat. So all I'm going to do is I'm going to come up on the balls of my feet. I'm going to get my hands here underneath my shoulders. Bend my elbows a lot. Place one knee on the back of that arm. Kind of shift forward and then take the other knee in back of that arm. Shift your body weight forward. Bring your big toes together. Crow. Amazing. Hold as long as you can. Takes a lot of upper body strength. Focus and you got to trust yourself. Those are three terrific yoga poses that I know you are going to be able to achieve.
