We're bringing sexy back...With a little yoga!

Locust Pose (or shalabhasana), is a great way to tone the entire back of your body. Your back, shoulders, buttocks and legs. It looks easy, but it’s actually a bit trickier than at first glance. Done 3 times a week as part of your regular exercise routine and you’ll see results fast.

A strong back is a sexy back, and they key to great posture – not to mention the number one way to prevent back injuries. Incorporating Locust Pose into your routine will also help ease back issues you already have. So break out the backless holiday dresses, and get ready to bring sexy back.



  •  Remember to breathe throughout this exercise.
  • Get out your exercise mat. Lie on your belly with your arms along the sides of your torso, palms up, forehead resting on the floor.
  • Turn your big toes toward each other to inwardly rotate your thighs, and tilt your pelvis so your tailbone presses toward your pubis. Almost like you’re anchoring your pelvis into the floor.
  • Exhale and lift your head, upper torso, arms, and legs away from the floor. You’ll be resting on your lower ribs, belly, and front pelvis.
  • Firm your buttocks and reach strongly back through your legs.
  • Raise your arms parallel to the floor and reach back actively through your fingertips. Imagine there’s a weight pressing down on the backs of the upper arms, and push up toward the ceiling against this resistance.
  • Reach your shoulder blades towards each other
  • Gaze is towards the floor with your neck straight and long. As you improve you can slowly bring your gaze forward, keeping the neck long.
  • Hold for 30 seconds. Release and repeat 2-5 more times.
