Audio Text:

for energy and weight loss alright so go ahead and favorite this video come back to it as many times as you want let’s get started standing at the top of your mat so bring your feet together bring the big toe ball mounds of your feet to touch and then your heels are either touching or one inch apart make sure your toes are spread out on the mat as far as you can get them and start to root down through all four corners of your feet so that’s inside outside inside and outside lift up on your kneecaps activate your thighs give your tailbone a little bit of a tuck so you’re tucking your pelvis kind of under a little bit this activates the front of your body bring the tips of your hips closer to the bottoms of your ribcage keep your core really strong but a little bit relaxed as well so we’re starting we’re working into Mountain Pose here arms are by your sides palms facing forwards take your shoulders up towards your ears and then relax them back and down your spine so you have a nice open heart open chest keep it like this for the entire practice at the same time keep your bottom ribs as closed as you can alright from here draw the sides of your neck back try to think about a straight line from the very bottom of your tailbone all the way up through the crown of your head take a deep breath in and a deep breath out on your next breath in reach your arms out and up touch your palms above your head maybe look up between your palms stretch back an inch or two and then exhale dive forward fold relax all the way down bend your knees as much as you need to get all of your fingertips on the ground so for some of you that might be really bent and then other people can maybe straighten their legs a little bit more make sure your head is relaxed so that your spine is completely relaxed send your breath into the very base of your tailbone into the very base of your spine keep a little soft bend in your knees on your next inhale all fingertips on the ground flatten your back and pull your heart forward so this is what we call a half lift so think about reaching your tailbone really far back and then the top of your head really far forward your neck is long so you’re not crunching your neck up or down you can draw your shoulders away from your ears last inhale here and then exhale relax forward fold so let’s do that one more time inhale fingertips on the ground long spine draw your heart forward and exhale fold right on your next inhale bend your knees a little bit reach your arms all the way up and out touch your palms together above your head and exhale hands to the center of your chest and namaste prayer position right so press your sternum your rib cage into your thumbnails press your hands into each other gently so that maybe you work towards a straight line between your elbows feel your shoulder blades come back together behind you give your tailbone a little bit of a tuck long spine we’re going to walk through some Sun Salutations and then we’re going to take a few variations Sun Salutations are a really nice way to build up your energy a little bit of heat wake you up in the morning so find your strong Mountain Pose here and let me know what is your morning routine do you drink a lot of coffee do you hit the snooze button 40 times before you get up myself I’m a huge coffee fan I drink about 3 cups of coffee in the morning some say that’s been some don’t anyway let me know what you think all right take a deep inhale reach your arms out and up touch your palms above your head and on your exhale slowly gently dive forward exhale all the air out of your lungs on your inhale half-lift fingertips on the ground top of your head forward and then on your exhale fold this time plant your palms shoulder widths distance apart and step your feet back into plank position okay so holding plank for a minute you’re going to make sure that your index fingers are parallel to the outside edges of your mat or a parallel to the to each other so ideally you would have a mat if you don’t have one it’s ok you can practice without a mat press your weight into all parts of your hands not just the heels of your hands and now send your heels towards the back of the room reach the backs of your knees up and at the same time tuck your tailbone in here keep your hips in line with your shoulders so you’ve got a long straight board here if you ever need to take your knees down for a modified plank it’s not a problem you still get the same kind of activation all right let’s take one more inhale here neck long and then on your exhale lower your knees and slowly lower all the way down to your mat make sure your elbows are tracking alongside your ribcage not pointing out to the sides when you get to the bottom untuck your toes press the tops of your feet into the mat try to even get the pinky toenails pressing into the mat so much that your kneecaps lift up keep your hands under your shoulders and then inhale and just gently lift your chest this is baby Cobra so from here stay here you’ve got a little weight in your hands but not a lot because most of what’s holding you up is your back muscles right so squeeze your elbows towards each other and then try it act like you’re pushing your chest forward this is a really nice energizing morning pose at the same time press your pelvis into the ground to keep your lower back long one more inhale like this and then exhale release bring your chin to the mat tuck your toes and you have an option here to raise your torso into modified plank with your knees down or you can take the more advanced option which would be lifting up your kneecaps and raising all the way back up into plank pose take one inhale here and on your exhale lift your hips up and back downward facing dog so downward facing dog is kind of like an active relaxation this is an inverted V shape from here you’re going to make sure your head is relaxed reach your heels down towards the mat and then reach the backs of your knees behind you sit your hips up towards the ceiling so you’re almost like you’re opening your hips up towards the sky your chest is relaxed and then press more into your hands to bring your heart closer to your thighs take a deep breath in and a deep breath out when you’re ready press into your hands keep your arms straight look forward bend your knees hover them a little bit off the ground and then step all the way up to the front of your mat back into a forward fold relax your head take it inhale halfway lift exhale fold inhale all the way back up reach your arms out and up touch your palms together make your movements as big as you can and then exhale bring your hands to prayer namaste that was a Sun Salutation we’re going to speed it up just a little bit one breath per movement so if you ever need to take a break feel free to do so otherwise let’s speed it up all right here we go inhale arms up and out touch your palms together above your head press your palms into each other exhale dive forward fold relax your head inhale hands on the ground half lift long spine exhale fold plant your palms and step your feet back to plank pose get your alignment set take an inhale get really strong and then exhale come all the way down to your mat use your knees or not make sure your elbows are squeezing towards your ribcage press the tops of your feet into your mat inhale baby Cobra shoulders down neck long and that exhale release baby Cobra on an inhale use your knees or not work your way back up into plank pose and then exhale downward facing dog hips lead you up and back take a deep breath in and a deep breath out bend your knees look forward and then step or lightly hop all the way up to the front of your mat inhale half-lift fingertips on the ground exhale forward fold inhale reach all the way out and up be as tall as you can but reach your tailbone down sale hands to the center of your chest namaste you grab your second cup of coffee alright so we’re gonna go through that again and I’m going to add in a couple of variations ready inhale arms out and up touch your palms together get really long exhale dive forward fold inhale half-lift exhale fold plant your palms this time step back to plank and lower only halfway down on an exhale chaturanga so notice my alignment my shoulders are not coming below my elbows I’m still pressing into my hands my tailbone is still tucked this is a very challenging pose so take it as you can on your inhale press the tops of your feet down and lift up your chest into upward facing dog so your option is Cobra or upward facing dog upward facing dog is kind of like Cobra on steroids it’s a little okay all right last inhale here push your chest forward roll your shoulders back and then exhale lift your hips up tuck your toes downward facing dog so starting to make this a little bit more active bend your knees look forward and then step or hop all the way to the front hands on the ground inhale half-lift exhale forward fold inhale reach all the way out and up and this time exhale come all the way back down swan dive big strong movements inhale half-lift top of your head forward exhale fold plant your palms this time step back or hop straight back to chaturanga exhale inhale untuck your toes upward facing dog exhale hips up and back downward facing dog take an inhale bend your knees deeply look forward press the ground away with your hands and then exhale step or hop all the way up to the front of your mat relax your head inhale halfway lift exhale fold okay inhale come all the way out and up exhale hands to prayer so starting a different variation of Sun Salutations make sure the balls of your feet are touching your heels are one inch apart this time on your inhale squat your hips low and reach your arms above your head this is chair pose so take a peek down at your toes make sure you can see them in front of your knees if you can’t shift your weight back so you’re really kind of sitting into your glutes here all right starting to build up a little bit of heat in your thighs or continuing to build heat in your thighs tuck your tailbone in to make your back flat and long reach your chest forward and then if it’s too much to keep your palms together you can keep them you can widen them to shoulder width distance last inhale here exhale forward fold straighten your legs relax your head inhale halfway lift and then exhale fold plant your palms step it to plank or hop to chaturanga untuck your toes inhale Cobra or upward-facing dog and then exhale downward-facing dog all right from here make sure you have a really strong hands on the mat take an inhale lift your right leg behind you keep your hips square on your exhale step your right foot between your hands so you can use your hand to scoot your foot up there it’s not a problem make sure your fingertips are in line with your toes spin your back foot down at a 45 degree angle and then on your next inhale reach your arms up into warrior one so warrior one is a lunge you’re not splaying out too far towards the front you’re actually going to point your tailbone down keep your ribs closed just like I told you the beginning of the video and then heart open arms reach up spin your pinkies towards each other so that you keep that length between your ears and your shoulders take one last breath in maybe sit a little lower into your lunge and then exhale plant your hands around your right foot make sure your palms are strong step your right foot back to meet your left you’re back in your plank pose inhale here and then exhale lower down to chaturanga or all the way down to the ground take an inhale baby Cobra or maybe upward facing dog your choice exhale downward facing dog deep breath in deep breath power reach your heels even further down towards the mat sit your hips up towards the sky when you’re ready take it inhale lift your left leg behind you keep your hips Square and your legs straight exhale step your left foot between your hands again use your hands to move it along if you need to spin your back foot down 45 degrees make sure that leg is really super strong and then inhale up warrior 1 on the other side so what I didn’t mention on the other side was you want to keep your hips Square to the front of the room so the lunging leg the left leg you’re going to draw that hip back at the same time push your other hip forward again close your ribs activate your core reach your tailbone down arms straight up towards the sky pinkies spin towards each other you could also put your palms together that’s up to you but I really I would like you to keep your neck long take one more inhale like this an inch lower and then exhale fold put your hands step your left foot back to meet your right plank pose inhale in plank and then exhale chaturanga or all the way down inhale Cobra or upward facing dog exhale up and back downward facing dog bend your knees look forward press the ground away with your arms hands and then step or hop to the front of your mat forward fold relax completely make sure the balls of your feet are touching on your inhale squat your hips low and reach your arms up for chair pose we’re only here for one breath don’t worry flatten your back inhale reach as high as you can exhale stand all the way up release your hands to prayer I hope you’re starting to feel more awake now inhale reach your arms up and out touch your palms together above your head and exhale dive forward fingertips on the ground inhale flat back half lift exhale fold plant your pant palms step it back or hop it back inhale upward facing dog or Cobra exhale downward facing dog inhale your right leg back and high behind you flicks your right toes towards your shoe and then exhale step your right feet right foot between your hands spin your back foot down 45-degree angle strong back leg inhale warrior one reach your arms up and out so we’re going to add on a little bit here sit low into your lunge square your hips towards the front of the room take a big inhale reach straight up and then exhale cactus arms so from here something that really builds up energy in the morning besides coffee is a hard openers so you’re going to have your arms like cactuses here and then take your elbows towards the front of the room at the same time fan your fingers out and try to touch your thumbs to each other behind your back so you notice your chest is going to start going up and out you’re not bending back in your lower back you’re bending back with your upper back this is really opening your heart and your chest getting a lot of air you’re going to feel your heart rate start to come up a little bit here take the sides of your neck back so that you’re not crunching your neck and then if it’s comfortable you can drop your head all the way back but only if it’s comfortable for your neck take one last big breath in here sit a little bit lower stay for your exhale and then inhale reach your arms all the way up sit low into your lunge exhale put your hands to surround your right foot step it back to meet your left back to plank pose take an inhale here strong arms exhale lower all the way down to the ground untuck your toes press the tops of your feet into the mat and now inhale baby Cobra peel your chest off the ground reach your heart forward and we’re going to add something on to this version of Cobra so you’re going to keep your feet glued to the ground this time float your hands off the mat reach them back behind you with your palms facing down roll your shoulders even more away from your ears and then start to feel all of your back muscles um activate right so your hands are reaching straight back towards the room like you’re going to try to grab something behind you all of your back muscles are activated take big breaths and think about showing as much of your chest towards the front of the room as possible last inhale here exhale release bring your chin to the mat plant your hands under your shoulders tuck your toes and then use your knees or not take an inhale to come back up through plank and then exhale downward facing dog deep breath in deep breath out open your mouth and move your jaw from side to side release any tension that you might be holding in your face and then when you’re ready take a big breath in lift your left leg back behind you flex your left toes towards your left shin and then exhale step your left foot between your hands spin your right foot down 45-degree angle and inhale up warrior 1 so right away start to sit down in your lunge draw your left hip back and push your right hip forward take one last inhale here reach up as hot as far as you can and then exhale cactus arm so back to this heart opening pose right so your elbows your upper arms are parallel to the ground start reaching your elbows forward at the same time push your heart up and out draw the sides of your neck back and then fan your fingers out and try to bring your thumbs to touch each other behind you obviously that’s not going to happen but that’s the energy that you’re going for so if you feel comfortable here sit lower into your lunge and drop your head all the way back this time if you’re really feeling comfortable you can straighten your arms behind you with your palms facing each other for a much more intense heart opener and it’s kind of hard to talk through so we’re only gonna be here for one more breath in one more breath out and he’ll reach your arms all the way up to the sky and then exhale plant your hands around your left foot step it back to meet your right take a big inhale in plank and then exhale lower all the way down to the ground so this time we’re adding on to our Cobra again press the tops of your feet into the mat make sure your fear about hips width distance that’s only about six inches so it’s it’s more narrow than most people think it is alright ready take a big breath in and lift your chest off the ground starting off in baby Cobra from here you can either stay like this or reach your arms behind you like you did before palms facing down roll your shoulders away from your ears and then either stay here or now start to float your feet off the ground press your pelvis into the ground to keep your back long so now you’re feeling your legs activate your arms activate your back muscles activate if you want one step further bend your knees towards your butt grab the outside edges of your feet with your hands and then slowly gently start to kick your feet into your hands rolling your shoulders open and pressing your chest forward this is called bow pose so you can come further into this pose by using your leg strength to reach your toes up even higher push your chest towards the front of the room don’t let your knees splay out to the side so keep them parallel you’ve got one more breath and then exhale no slingshots release very gently down to the ground tops of your feet down put your hands back under your shoulders bring your chin to the mat when you’re ready tuck your toes roll your shoulders away from your ears make your way back through knee plank or high plank on an inhale and exhale up and back down deep breath in and deep breath out now from here you’re going to go ahead and come all the way down to your knees we’re gonna do a pose called camel so since this poses on your knees you might want to put something under there if you have sensitive knees that could be the edge of your mat rolled up or you could take a blanket or a pillow whatever you have available so go ahead make two fists put them between your knees it’s about inner hips with distance that’s the alignment that you want make sure your lower legs are tracking right behind your knees so they’re not coming out we’re going in right tops of your feet on the mat and then just go ahead stand up on your knees all right so this poses a hard opener it’s a little bit of a backbend but it’s really important to remember that you’re not bending back with the lower part of your back you’re not crunching into your lower spine the part that you’re bending is the upper part right so we’ve done a lot of work already with strengthening the back and opening the heart we’re gonna take it a little bit further with this pose this is a very energizing pose all right take your head put them on your lower back with your fingertips facing down so it’s right above your butt kind of like if you were wearing those really high waisted 1980s jeans if that would be where the back pockets would be alright take your elbows towards each other roll your shoulders away from you expose your inner shoulders and your chest your hips are right over your knees keep them there don’t let them go forward or back right so this involves core strength to tuck your tailbone so it’s reaching down instead of back or forward from here draw the sides of your neck back and then start to reach your chest up at the same time keep your shoulders away from your ears keep your elbows squeezing towards each other so stop when this is enough for you when you feel a stretch again your heart rates going to rise again so chest is reaching up and out hips over your knees squeeze your elbows towards each other and then before you even think about going any further back just keep going up and out and up and out and up and out until you’re ready to maybe drop your head back now this is just an option if you’re here and you want more gently start to take one hand or maybe both to your heels but keep your hips over your knees and don’t let your body come back or forward so keep a really straight line with your legs reach your chest up let your head relax and take big breaths this poses great for counteracting a lot of the the work that we do sitting at desks are driving cars or just generally hunching over take one last inhale here stay for your exhale and then gently retrace your steps work your way out of your pose take a second to just center yourself neutralize your spine and then sit your hips back on your heels stay straight up take an inhale reach your arms out and up touch your palms together above your head exhale hands to prayer and then gently Child’s Pose so relax your hips on your heels rest your head all the way down if it’s not comfortable for you to get your head onto the floor you can rest it on your forearms or you can make two fists just come to a place where you can relax comfortably so there are two versions of Child’s Pose you can have your knees wide if you would like to get into your hips more or if you’d like to stretch out your lower back you can take your knees together under you but wherever you are just relax and breathe deeply so stay in your child’s pose as long as you want this is the last pose of the morning energizing weight loss routine when you’re ready go ahead and come to hands and knees or tabletop position and then slowly start to stand up start in a forward fold relax your head and your spine inhale your arms all the way out and up stretch up reach up look up and exhale your hands to prayer namaste all right thank you so much for watching be sure to favorite this video so you can come back as many times as you need when it gets too easy

elbow or if you can only reach your hand that’s fine too placing our right arm behind our back and twisting to look back over that right shoulder and if this is too much if you can’t reach your elbow to your knee you can always take the foot that’s planted put it on the outside of the knee that is laying down and then just use your hand so pull on your knee following Tracy mmm I’m so happy to have my best friends with me today and I love that we get to match and have fun so what do you think of our outfits because I’m loving this dragonfly it’s so soft and stretchy they’re so pretty you guys thank you yeah so exciting hmm all right and on your next inhale we’re coming back to sitting now we are going to switch our legs out so our right shin is coming parallel with the top of our mat and our left shin is going to go right on top making that nice triangle placing the hands on the knee cups we’re going to inhale reaching that chest up long keeping the back of the neck nice and long exhale try to make these movements isolated slow them down really use that core use your back make this an action that starts from the ground and works its way up your spine [Music] katie-cat Zeppelin says use your core don’t forget to breathe and on your next inhale go ahead and come up to a nice tall seated position we’re sitting stacked directly over our hips now placing the left hand just out to the side of us reaching that right arm up nice and tall and sliding out on that exhale again keeping that belly pulled in I’m not fussed over here I’m really trying to lengthen my spine still keeping that right hip grounded even if you’re just here slightly to the side that’s great just keep working at it and you’ll get deeper and deeper and then now if we want to take this to the next level we can start our pulses exhaling to reach out inhaling to sit up can even take that arm behind the back or use it to help you Yoga is all about finding what is right for you no two people are the same I’m not your learning curve and on your next inhale coming up to seated we’re now going to tuck that left foot I’m sorry right foot by our hip left foot comes over by the knee again you can take whatever variation works for you but we’re pulling in that bellies zipping it up and taking that left arm behind our back and reaching over keeping the spine nice and long [Music] and inhale coming back to Center okay so next what we’re going to do is some seated twist we’re going to have our goalie arms here and every exhale we’re going to turn to look back over that shoulder and we’re going to inhale to Center and then exhale to look over the opposite shoulder again taking our head with us rabu and exhale really twisting wringing out those organs and inhale back to Center next we’re going to come up for our kneeling Halfmoon go ahead and come to your right knee trailing your foot right back behind you you can step your right hand just out to the side so that way it lands underneath that shoulder keeping that slight bend in your elbow pulling in to the side inhale lifting that foot straight up making sure it’s an alignment with your body activating the belly exhaling we’re gonna crunch forward kind of rounding the spine inhale to straighten out stretch exhale really activating from the core now if this is too much for you you can always come down to your side by scooting your knee down lowering your hip and then bringing your elbow down and then same thing inhaling exhaling to crunch inhale exhale to crunch following along with miss Tracy and one more time inhale exhale crunch and inhale now we’re going to go ahead and do the same thing other side so now I’m switching over to the left knee foot trailing back behind walking that left foot out keeping everything in alignment here inhaling that arm up and foot up exhale crunching in really reaching and extending if you want on your inhales you can even reach back behind exhale to bring that in activating that belly EXO moving at your own pace breathing and inhale back to kneeling alright go ahead and join us on your back with your knees up and feet planted you can take your arms out to the side in a t position or have them bent in the cactus position we’re going to pick our knees up flexing the feet and then we’re going to exhale taking the knees to one side not going farther than what you can do without picking up that opposite elbow exhale other side inhaling to pick back up exhale lower down again keeping both shoulders planted making this an action starting from the tummy if you need to or want to you can take it another level by taking the leg straight up in the air adds a bit more of a challenge really squeezing those inner thighs you can do it I’m shaking storm within calm without inhale back to Center you can go ahead and hug your knees do you want to give them a kiss thank you knees and then same thing putting the arms back out t-position or cactus trying to take them as straight up as you can if you need to have a little bend and out somewhat that’s fine but make sure you’re really pulling in that bellybutton making those toes shake and quiver and on your inhale we’re going to open out exhale bringing up right foot across inhale apart right foot comes behind now exhale taking back up I’m shaking see my toes wiggling squeezing that belly keep pushing the mind gives up before the body does one last one and exhale knees to chest hug it out you can even hold your hands on your knees and kind of pull your shoulders out but pushing your knees forward into your hands pressing those hips around mmm good job way to hang in there me burnin alright now we are going to go into a laying down eagle pose here so we are going to pick up our left knee right leg comes up over and then tuck your right foot under if you can’t reach that right foot all the way around your calf just yet you can follow along with Tracy and you really want to make sure that you are pulling the outside of your calf together so that way your sandwich in it because eventually we want to make it too tucked all the way so then we are going to do opposite arms of our legs so then now
