Spring is here! Let’s dust off winter with some heart-pumping spring training. During the month of April, Prana Fitness is going to post daily one workout move or yoga pose that you can do at home, at a park, or anywhere.
April 10th: Horse with Heel Lifts
Stand with feet out very wide and squat low. Angle feet out to match the angle of thighs. Sit as low as you can, knees super wide apart. Stack knees above heels and never let knees go forward of the feet. Sit weight back into your mid-foot and heels. Squeeze tummy gently in and up towards ribcage. Tuck tailbone slightly under and stitch bottom ribs in towards spine. Touch palms together with thumbs at heart. Keep neck long and neutral. Lift heels to maximum height. When you flatten feet back down, sit all the weight back into the mid-foot and heels. You can do long holds up in the heel lifts, or you can move more quickly with up and down reps. Form is more important than speed.
