10 Minute Yoga & Pilates Abs Sequence for Home

May 25, 2012

While I love teaching my yoga and Pilates classes, I’m not a fan of going to the gym for a full-on balls-to-the-wall workout.

So I’ll usually do some abs variation to at least work on that portion. Hey, one step at a time, right? ;-) Enjoy! And remember - it’s only 10 minutes. You can do anything for 10 minutes!
