Let’s introduce a little variety into your routine, shall we?

In the Udaya yoga video above, instructor Rudy Mettia demonstrated how to do boat and table poses to help engage your core and stretch your muscles in the process. They’re a little more entertaining (and relaxing to the mind!) than your average crunch or plank.

Take a look at the instructions above and add the postures to your next sweat session. Struggle with back pain? Mettia has you covered with modifications to each move. Give them a try to mix up your workout.
