Butterfly: You're gonna stand with your feet wide for this move then squat down and come up on to your toes. It's kind of like a jumping jack. If you wanna make it harder, go ahead and jump as you stand up. You'll do 2 sets of 16 reps. Bend and Stretch: To get started, get into downward dog position then bend your knees towards the floor pulling your belly button into your spine. You're going to do 2 sets of 10 reps alternating bends and stretches. Genie: The trick to this move is to keep your hips squared as you side-bend and extend your arms. You're going to do 10 reps on this side then switch sides and repeat. Do 2 sets total. Kneeling Leg Circle: Once you get in position for this move, you're going to keep your body perfectly still as you draw 10 clockwise circles with your toes pointed and foot turned out and then do 10 counterclockwise circles, then switch sides and repeat. You'll do 2 sets total. Alternate V-Sit Roll: To complete one rep of this move, you'll go from V-sit to your left side then back to V-sit and on to your right side. Slowly roll down your spine on to your side and keep your arms and legs lifted. You'll do 2 sets of 10 repetitions.
