35 Minute Christmas Workout! Pilates, Yoga, Cardio Fusion

Hello, Everybody! So today we are going to be doing a Christmas themed workout The only theme right now is the Christmas tree and my shirt but, we'll see Let's get to it So we are going to start things off with some stretching Lift your arms above your head Lean back and swoop down going into a downward dog bicycle your feet a little all the way down and then come through into plank position and go back to downward dog now go into your plank again and we are going to lower and raise into cobra breath out back into downward dog let's do that 5 times 2 3 4 and 5 go back into child's pose got a dog hair let's come into a nice butterfly position put your feet together and you can butterfly your legs a little this is just one I have always done so, if you need to butterfly or keep your knees up a little, it's ok Now roll your shoulders back something I really like is pulling yourself straight pushing your arms out and over and then you go behind your head, breath out and bring your elbows together now roll your shoulders forward a little walk forward with a flat back I've got this intense sunbeam but I wanted the Christmas tree Now put one hand off to the side Raise the other up bend the lower elbow don't forget to keep breathing back up, switching arms try not to let your opposite knee go up

down and out let's do a nice twist make sure your back is as straight as you can shoulders together and head up let's twist to the left side to the right This is kind of a weird position to do this from Let's put our legs out into a V Just do a comfortable distance for yourself don't overexert put your hands behind your back point your toes down and back up point them down and flex go through the balls of your feet and flex point and flex put your hand in the front and walk yourself down as far as you can, trying to keep your back straight don't care too much about going all the way down I can feel it right here Now you can curl your back and roll up through the bottom of the spine walking ourselves back That's good for there Hello, Peachy! We'll call this a 10-second break We'll see if she joins us for this next portion Let's get on all fours in table top Make your hips even arms even under your shoulders and a flat back while you sink between your shoulders Now we will do cat and cow for cow, bend down and breath in for cat, go up and breath out like a cat hissing When you go back down, roll through your shoulders to get a nice popping back up for cat roll through your shoulders for cow back up for cat Now we are in table top so we are going to do a pilates move I learned That sounded very southern and we'll start with the left leg Lift using your bottom and back down just straight up I think these are called donkey kicks We are going to try and do 20 of these 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 So now we will do knee crosses Make sure when doing these moves to keep your right leg from shifting and your abs tight so for the cross, we will go up behind your calf on the other side up, behind your calf and we will do 20 as well 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 Now to switch it up we'll do some fire hydrants back flat and lift your leg out 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 and 20 a little bit of a break now we will do the donkey kicks with the crosses for 20 counts, like 10 each so we go, up for kick, over for cross up for kick, down these are just crosses aren't they?
