Welcome back! This week’s exercise program is inspired by our Health Profession Intern, Ashleigh. She enjoys doing these exercises at home, and the best part is that no equipment is required! All of these exercises can be easily modified to fit your fitness level. Check each exercise for a description of one way to make the exercise easier or harder.
Sun Salutation – this is a version of a yoga progression that does a great job of warming your body up with dynamic movements and stretches. There are different variations of this, so if you already know your favorite way to perform a sun salutation, please do! Follow the arrows through steps 1-8. Repeat 10 times. (Modifications will be in parentheses.)
Perform 10-15 repetitions of each exercise. If an exercise has alternating movements, perform 20 repetitions (10 on each side). Repeat the circuit 3 times through. (Modifications can be found in parentheses).

Side Lying Leg Raise
Half Releve Squat Bear Crawl
