We all know that not everyone is a health fanatic, but you can definitely begin getting into a great routine by choosing a workout like yoga to help you out. Yoga can be as intense as you want it to be, and if you’re a beginner, we have put together a great list of moves you can follow in order to get motivated and lead a healthier life! After all, beach season is literally here almost, so it’s time to get that cute butt off that sofa and work those muscles!

1. Child’s Pose: Do this by sitting up comfortably on your heels. Roll your torso forward, bringing your head down and having your forehead rest on the bed in front of you. Make sure to also lower your chest as close to your knees as you can, extending your arms in front of you. Hold it and breathe. 

2. Cobra Pose: Lie facedown on the floor with your thumbs right under your shoulders, your legs extended with the tops of your feet on the floor. Tighten and tuck in your hips downward as you squeeze your glutes. Make sure to press your shoulders down and away from the ears. Then, push through your thumbs and indez fingers as you raise your chest toward the wall in front of you. Relax for a bit, then repeat.

3. Seated Twist: Start by sitting on the floor with your legs extended. Cross your right foot over the outside of your left thigh and bend your left knee. Make sure to keep your right knee pointed toward ceiling. Place your left elbow to the outside of your right knee and right hand on the floor behind you. Now, twist as far right as you can, keeping both sides of your butt on the floor. Stay in this position for a minute. Afterward, switch sides and repeat.

4. Triangle Pose: Start off by extending your arms out to the sides, then bend over your right leg. Stand with your feet about 3 feet apart, and have the toes on your right foot turned out to about 90 degrees, and your left foot to 45 degrees. Have your right hand touch the floor or resting above your knee on the right leg, while extending your fingers of your left hand toward the ceiling. Finally, turn your gaze to the ceiling as well and hold it for 5 minutes. Repeat on the other side. 

5. Bridge Pose: Start by laying down on the floor with knees bent directly over your heels. Next, place your arms at the side, palms down. Exhale, then press your feet into the floor as you lift your hips. As the final step, clasp your hands under your lower back and press your arms down, lifting your hips until your thighs are parallel to the floor, bringing your chest toward your chin and hold for a minute.
