Virtual Fitness: How To Do BOSU Yoga Poses

Challenge Your Balance and Strengthen Your Core With Yoga Stretches On The BOSU
The BOSU works the core muscles because it requires the ability to remain steady while stretching on an unstable surface. Focus and concentration are more difficult on the BOSU than on a mat alone. If you find the BOSU more than you can handle, do the Yoga poses without it.
MODIFICATIONS: 1) Use a balance pad in place of the BOSU. 2) Do the poses without equipment.

Virtual Yoga: How To Do A Seated Forward Fold Hamstring Stretch

The Forward Fold Is A Basic Bodyweight Stretch That Requires Little Space And No Equipment
INSTRUCTIONS: Legs together. Bend ankles. Sit tall, arms reaching upward. Bend forward from hips and grab toes. Allow elbows to bend slightly. Hold stretch 30 seconds. To release stretch, begin slowly sitting up while sliding hands upward on legs.
TARGET MUSCLES: The Seated Forward Fold is a basic Yoga pose that stretches posterior thigh (hamstrings), and calves.
MODIFICATIONS: Use a stretch strap, Yoga belt, or thick band around your feet if you can’t reach far enough to grab your toes. Or just hold on around your ankles if you don’t have equipment. Another option is a towel, although this can be clumsy since towels are thick and not long enough.
