Summer Shape Up Challenge:
Wind Releasing Pose

Demonstrated by Taylor Nelms

Wind Relieving Pose – Start by lying on your back, feet and arms together. Take a deep breathe. As you’re exhaling, pull your right knee toward your chest with your hands and try to keep your thigh as close to your abdomen as possible. Take another deep breathe and exhale while you lift your head and chest toward your knee. Try to touch your knee with your chin and hold for 5 breathes. On each exhale you should slightly tighten your grip around your knees. Repeat this process with your left knee.  Benefits: Stimulates blood circulation and tones the legs and arm muscles. It also helps digestion and strengthen the abdomen muscles.  Tips: Try not to let your back off the ground and keep your extended leg as straight as possible.
