Bosu Burn!

When using props for yoga and pilates inspired movements, it is important to have mastered the mechanics without the prop first. The Bosu is a nice way to challenge muscles and balance once forms are mastered!

 

Cobra Tail single arm reach

Anchor lower body by pressing tops of feet into floor.

Thighs squeeze tight as if you only have one leg.

Hip press into Bosu ball below the midline of the ball.

Abdominals squeeze tight.

Alternate lifting one arm at a time.
