Tolasana on Blocks

The Tolasana on Blocks exercise works your rectus abdominis, obliques and transversus abdominis.

-So, we'll start with scale toes. It's one of my favorites. Bring your hands to blocks. Squeeze your knees in. Wrap your arms around as what you're going to do with cannon ball. The trick is you want to keep your knees as close to your chest as you can. You're going to want to fall away and that's where the work is. Pull your knees in. For most of us, when you come to lift yourself up, your toes will come up to the ground. That's the beginner level. Intermediate, squeeze your knees in and get your feet off of the ground. More advanced, parallel your feet and straighten out your leg. You have to pull your ribcage back and maybe even reach the both toes and we're going to hold for 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and lower yourself down. You take three to five sets of that. Remember, just switch your legs.
