Yoga and Pilates Exercises to Boost Your Metabolism
The Sun Salutation is a series of poses which helps get your body warmed up and is a good one to do first thing in the morning, before any workout — or any time you need a full body stretch.
Starting position: Kneel on the floor and bring your left foot forward so its flat and bent at a 90 degree angle, with your thigh parallel to the floor.
Lift: Touch your palms together and lift your arms straight up. Engage your abdominals and keep your shoulders down and back.
Stretch: Look to the ceiling as you stretch upward with your upper body and shift your weight to your front thigh. Repeat with your right leg forward.
