Hi, I am Dina Prioste and welcome to Get Exercised. Happy Thanksgiving or if you aren't American Happy Thursday. I have got the ingredients to a hot, hot arm balance. You can add to the holiday table. It's called pose dedicated to the Sage part 2, flying.
Again, you want to be pretty warmed up by the time you come into this pose and if you are a beginner don't worry about the arm balance part you are just going to work on the hip stretch, the hip opening. So we are going to start with our hip opener. Bring your right foot to the outer edge of the mat. Just like kind of a long step. Bring your left leg straight back behind and just work on getting the elbows down to the floor. And so if that's really not happening, you can stock some books or some block and place your elbows there as high as you need to. Hang out here and breathe, keep that back leg really active, you are bringing that heel back. That's going to help in your arm balance.
And once you stretch out that, we are going to take this into a hamstring stretch. Sit on back, regular runner stretch, flex that foot, fold over that front leg. Here we are going to come back to this flied lunge, take that back leg up. Now work on getting your shoulders down as low as you can. If you can get your right shoulder under that right thigh, great. We will do aeroplane arms here, keep that back leg active that's going to help with your balance.
Now from here we are going to work on coming to arm balance. Keep your hands down, really far back, you want to bend the elbows. You are going to bring your right thigh on the back of that right arm. Your left, your left side, your abdominal or your hip area is going to go on to the left elbow, go lean forward, now this right foot, really just need somewhere to go. So for me I have to take this out to the side, take it out and you are flying, flying.
Once your are here, inhale, butt up, exhale jump back. Awesome, let's try the other side. Your ingredients are be warmed up, stretch with the hip opener and then a hamstring stretch. Work on getting the left shoulder under that left thigh, balance here, work on keeping that back leg nice and active, bring your hands back, bend those elbows, lean forward. Get that foot out of the way and you are flying. Inhale butt up, exhale jump back. This Thanksgiving practice pose dedicated to the Sage Part 2 and really impress your family. Next week by request I am going to change it up and show you some of these Cardio kick boxing moves that I did to warm up in GE 57. Have a Happy Holiday, I am Dina Prioste and you have just been exercised. Tired, good night.
