These 5 intermediate-level workouts will help you stay toned, trim, and relaxed in just 20 minutes per day. Pick and choose your practice based on how you are feeling and what you need on any given day. Each teacher has their own unique style but all three of them will help you feel energized, strong, and relaxed. All of these workouts take place in beautiful outdoor settings in nature, except for Beginner’s Flow which is in an indoor studio.

Energy Flow
Rodney Yee expertly guides you through a quick, back-bending flow that will leave your heart pumping and your upper chest open. The supine leg stretches at the end with the “earth supporting you” will help you cool down and relax your back. Rodney is a powerful instructor: when he says “your body unwinds,” it really does.

Beginner’s Flow
Kathryn Budig’s upbeat energy and encouragement to have a sense of humor in your practice makes her fun, quick flow enjoyable. This practice will increase your heart rate and give you a fresh perspective on yoga. Her unique hop-ups increase the intensity and fun factor of this practice. She challenges you to strengthen your body with some side and forearm planks and Dolphin pose. Her resourceful insights help yogis to chip away at stress and tension in the mind and body. She includes some modifications of poses to ensure beginners practice with good alignment.

Abs Yoga
Rodney Yee encourages you to move the core in a mindful and relaxed way by giving specific instruction to move with the breath. Even though it is relaxed, the instruction helps you develop power in the core. His reminders to soften the face help the upper body to relax even when the lower body needs to work hard. Rodney has revolutionized the core workout in this practice with an innovative flow of yoga poses focusing on the abdomen, linked together with slow and mindful leg lifts. Some wonderful breathing exercises at the beginning and end of this short practice help yogis deeply connect to their core muscles.

Lower Body Tone
Suzanne Deason expertly fits a complete intermediate practice into just 25 minutes. This practice will help you develop power in the legs and the hips. A few repetitions of Chair pose will help build heat in the lower body, especially the quadriceps and abdominals. Her alignment cues to connect the legs to the spine or to the heels help you solidify both the standing and supine poses in this practice.

Strong Back
Rodney Yee does it again with this strengthening and stretching practice. His “weaving” Cobra pose is pure brilliance. His soothing voice guides you to “illuminate the entire spine.” His precise alignment cutes help clarify the poses so both new and seasoned yogis can feel supple in the spine and ease tension in the back. Using the chair as a prop for Tree pose and Warrior I helps you to feel supported and to release tension in the spine.

Buyer’s Guide:
Energy Flow: I felt amazing and exhilarated, my chest felt open and was moving more easily. Beginner’s Yoga: Kathryn’s fast-paced flow and lightheartedness left me smiling and feeling strong. Abs Yoga: I appreciate slow and mindful core exercises that are different from traditional crunches. My core definitely felt worked out at the end of this practice – in a good way. Lower Body Tone: Suzanne’s nuggets of alignment wisdom helped me get into the true expression of the pose. My legs certainly felt worked out, especially my inner thighs. Strong Back: Rodney’s nice focus on the spine throughout this entire practice helped my back and core muscles feel stronger, and eased my back tension.
