Day 4: Toned Booty

What can I say? This plan is all about the booty, and I'm not gonna pretend it's anything else. We all want a nice, perky butt, and these moves are what's going to get you there more than any other plan or video, I should say thes specific moves are the ones that I do the most and I have the most fun with. It's gonna be a killer. It's a lot of booty. It's a lot of outer hip, and it's gonna be a lot of fun. All right, so let's start on our hands and knees, shoulders, motorists, hips above the knees just finding a little neutral spine to start. Let's take a one time cat and cats with an inhale, but the belly soft Lift your tailbone. Lift your booty, lift your gaze with an exhale round. Everything pulls in and up navel to spine. One more time here in hell instead of cow post licious, exhale TUI neutral spine. So putting a little awareness in our course is the first thing we're gonna lose when we start to add on. Know that and do your best to keep it pulling in and up. Take your left knee ...

slightly to center for balance. It's extend your right leg behind you, flex through your foot and then notice the big toe. Is it falling to the right? Is it completely collapsing in? And we're dumping our hip and try to keep it level here. Think of spiraling from the inner right thigh instead of lifting with your head. Take a nice, deep breath and we're gonna take our foot out to the site. If hamstrings are tight, we can bend the knee here, but kind of like a dog peeing on a fire hydrant. We're gonna lead with our toes and just take it forward. We're trying to lift your right toes to the top corner of the mat, and you can even gaze back as if you're wanting to touch your knee to your shoulder. It's not so much about how far were coming forward and back. Actually, the smaller the better. It's all about keeping your heel the height of your hip. Let's take a pause. Circle five toes, Ford, four three to one. Bend the knee in. We're gonna kick it forward heel to the glutes and for nine, getting right into it right eight seven six. Doing good guys. Five. Keep a hell up. Four three to last one. Toes forward, forward, forward, step on the outside edge of your right hand. It's assist the right knee or thigh open with the right hand coming a little wider with the left. And then I want you to think of sinking the left hip down. If you want to come onto the form, that's fine to just a couple breaths. And again, let's take a little bit of movement. That little sway. It's gonna rockin it out. We're gonna keep our right toes angling to the right. Whatever direction the toes are angling, I want your knee to do the same thing. Come up onto your left hand, tuck your back right toes. Lift your right knee up, and we're gonna pivot the left toast slightly to the right as well, coming onto the outer edge of the foot. Take your hand a little wider if you need. We want her shoulder to stay above the wrist within in half. Reacher right? Irma lift from the bottom left hip with an excel seen get down. Nice big movements in how will live. Exhale will lower, so we're really stretching out. The outer hips was, well, is working on a little bit into the legs. Let's go five four, three to one more time lifted up and pivot all the way to your left. Those will come in heels out. Straddle your month. Relax down the center for a minute, form up into your hips just a bit. Inhale shoulders the height of the hips. Pivot your toes out. We're gonna seeing into the back left hip sweep the right arm up, if you can. What's more important is that your back heel stays grounded. If your toes are up like this, lift your hips until you can ground the hell staying up higher and then we'll start to sink it down. Once we build more mobility in your ankle and flexibility in your hips and hamstring, lift up through center, think of squeezing your left glute to bring you up, exhaling front your month into the right heel again. Sweep your left arm up, or maybe lift the hips up. If you're right. Heels not grounded down last month, squeeze the right body lift lift lift up. He'll tell your feet in heels out and then roll up through the core goddess pose. Take your feet a little closer than your straddle. Take a minute. To get into this, we want to make sure we can see our big toes and then sit up through the crown of the head. You want to kind of be a little wobble? You want to be wobbly, but you want to ride your edge. So if you're playing it really safe, we're going to be rounding and sticking the but back. Imagine that the walls at your back. We're gonna pull the low belly in enough as you tuck your tailbone. It's gonna add a little stretch right here. It's a good thing. Sick her hands to our hips. Sink a little deeper with an inhale. Straighten your legs, not doing anything too crazy. But as you straighten, squeeze the glutes in Anna. Exhale will sink it. Look in hell. Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze X.

Toning your legs is about so much more than just strengthening. Today’s class will be pretty quad-intensive, but you’ll spend a lot of time on mobility as well, stretching and strengthening through dynamic movement to truly practice yoga poses to tone your legs.

Day 3: Toned Arms
Today you’ll build heat and feel the burn as you move through rep after rep of plank, chaturanga, dolphin pose, and more. Get ready to ignite and tone your biceps, triceps, shoulders and back body. Practice these yoga poses to tone your arms and shape your upper body.

Day 4: Toned Booty
Through a variety of asana, squat and lunge variations and reps, you’ll work your glute muscles in ways you never have before in today’s lesson. Get ready for an energizing, booty-lifting challenge.

Day 5: Toned Body
As yogis, we work through a lot of “push” movements; chaturanga, downward facing dog, plank—but we lack a lot of the “pull” movements. Today, it’s all about the pull. Step into full-body tone yoga and get fired up!

Day 6: Rest Day
Today is a rest day. Take a breather and let your muscles recover.

Day 7: Rest Day
Today is a rest day, which is crucial for your muscles to have the chance to grow.

Fantastic class and teacher! This is a great routine to get into when working out from home has never been so trendy. This series absolutely pushed me to go further than I thought I could and luckily proved right. The results? Brighter mood, better sleep, fitter bod, more energy and overall feels like I accomplished something worthwhile! *Pro tips: 1) When Ashley mentions grabbing socks to make one of the moves harder, the ones for your hands do not need to be worn on your hands like gloves. 2) Do this series with an accountabilibuddy - for me, my fiancée - so when you mix up the step noted above and have wool socks up to your elbows ready to start the workout, someone can be there to laugh with you. 3) For the photographers, an old 5D MkII camera box was a perfect substitution for the needs of the yoga block used for some of the moves.

This is amazing. Definitely NOT a beginner class, but Ashley is very clear in her presentation. The pacing is steady and demanding, but I find my strength and stamina improving with every workout. I have to simplify lessons to accommodate weakened muscles after several years of ill health, but I do what I can, and it feels wonderful. I do think this should perhaps be upgraded to ‘advanced’ from current ‘intermediate’ level grade. Even Ashley gets a bit winded and occasionally shakey, and she is as fit and strong as anyone I’ve ever seen.

I have switched from my regular HIIT (high-intensity interval training ) to this workout. Recommend it if you've been working out for 3 -4 months or more and want to step up your fitness level.
