1. Boat Pose

Sit on your sit bones with your back straight. Slightly lean back, resting on your finger tips behind you. Lift your legs off the ground, keeping them straight or bending them at a right angle. If you need to modify, gently keep your toes on the ground. When you have your balance, lift your fingers off the ground and use them to frame your legs. Hold and breath for about 30 seconds. Repeat 3 times. Advance in amount of time and reps as needed.

2. Plank Pose

Plank pose is one of my favorite ab workouts because it also target the legs, shoulders, back and arms. Come onto all fours into tabletop position. Make sure the entirety of your hand is pressing into the ground, like you’re trying to press the floor away from you. Lift your knees off the ground and hold your hips inline with your shoulders and heels, holding yourself firm like a board. Make sure your neck is inline with your spine. Pull your belly up and in and hold for 1 minute. Rest, then repeat 2 more times.
