This is the first of a 3-part series of playful yet intense total body strengthening moves that combine elements from Pilates, Yoga, and natural transitional movements like tripods, single-leg squats, arm balances, and even planks done safely!

This routine sets you up in several positions that let gravity do the work of stretching for you. Even though the video itself is quite short, you should spend about 20-30 minutes with these moves altogether, or anywhere from 2-10 minutes in each pose as your body allows.
