Start in a plank position, hands under shoulders, then shift your weight into your right hand and roll onto the outside of your right foot until your torso is facing left. Brace your core and lift your left arm toward the ceiling. Stay here, or bring your left foot onto your inner right thigh.
Stand with feet hip-width apart and legs slightly bent. Shift your weight into your left leg and lift your right heel off the ground. Turn your right thigh outward, then bend your right knee as you lift your leg and place your foot on the inside of your left thigh. Stay here, or lift your right leg and hold your bent right knee with your hand, or straighten your right knee and grasp your big toe, bringing your leg out to the side. When you feel stable, straighten your left leg.
Check out the yoga moves Real Housewives’ Teresa Giudice does to stay zen:
Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet on the floor, hip-width apart. Bend your elbows and place palms on the floor above your shoulders, fingers pointing toward your body. Lift your hips and spine off the floor. Stay here or lift your shoulders, then your head, off the floor. Keep your elbows bent and your heels raised, or straighten your elbows and lower your heels to rise into wheel pose. (Tone up, beat stress, and feel great with Rodale’s new With Yoga DVD!)
Get onto hands and knees with your hands directly under your shoulders. Bring your left knee forward and place it just behind your left wrist so that your knee is in front of your left hip and your toes are near your right hip. Allow your right leg to extend behind you until it is straight and the top of your right foot is on the floor. Sit up tall and inhale. On the exhale, slowly walk your hands forward with your arms extended until you feel a tolerable stretch in your left hip. Hold, then use your hands to slowly push yourself back to the starting position.
