How to Fallen Angel (4 minutes) 

Fallen Angel is a beautiful pose that looks like you just fell from the heavens, once you learn it you’ll love it! Other than letting your inner angel shine, this pose strengthens your core, shoulders and arms. Keep practicing! It’s actually a lot easier than it looks ;) If you’re comfortable in Side Crow you’re just that much closer to Fallen Angel

“1A — YOGA TO LENGTHEN & STRENGTHEN THE LOWER BODY– 16 MIN”

Instructor: Sarah Beth Yoga

Difficulty of the poses/sequence: Beginner. She offers excellent instruction making it easy to follow along with. The most challenging posture in this video is Warrior 3. 

The class: I wanted to do a class today, but didn’t have time for a long one, this was the perfect solution! The sequence was great, it flowed very well! Sarah offers wonderful cues and I felt like I could follow along without even looking up at the video. I enjoyed how the class began and ended with the same poses. I appreciated the simple music and liked that it didn’t overwhelm the class. Overall: I loved the class. I think Sarah is a great instructor! <3

Yoga Core Routine - Bikini Abs (10 minutes) 

This is a short core routine with powerful movements and poses to whittle your waist, pull everything in and help you tone a tight core for this summer’s bikini season. Focus on stability! 

I’ve been doing this set 2-3x a week for the last 2 months and I’ve noticed defined obliques, a tighter waist and firmer abs. I hope you will too!
