The health benefits of Yoga are accepted around the world. Cardio Yoga by Shalini Bhargava is a fitness routine with yoga postures and elements of cardio workouts to burn more calories.
Here’s how you can try this yoga workout at home.
Step 1: Breathing exercises
This is a warm-up exercise to stretch while improving your breathing technique. Inhale through your nose while you slowly raise your arms up. Lengthen your spine and tighten your ab muscles while you hold your breath. Exhale as you bring your arms down.
Step 2: Stretching exercise
This is another warm-up exercise to loosen up your entire body. Raise your hand up as you breathe in. Hold your breath, stand on your toes, and stretch upward. Exhale as you bring your arms down and stretch your chest upward to the ceiling.
Step 3: Downward facing dog
Keep your feet wide while keeping your toes facing forward. Extend your arms to the side. Keep your shoulders relaxed as you lower your body. Place your palms and your fingers on the floor. Shift your body weight forward, and back as you breathe in and out.
Step 4: Side squats
Keep your legs apart and bend your knees outward. Ensure that your back is straight and your chest is up. During the squats keep your ab muscles firm. Breath in and out as you bend down and get up.
Step 5: Lunges
Turn sidewards and place one leg forward and bring the other behind. Keep your back straight as you bend your back knee downward and front knee forward. Make sure your knees are firm as you jump up and down, while breathing in and out.
