When you think of yoga, do you picture someone lying in corpse pose on the floor thinking about his feelings? Trust us, yoga — and particularly this sequence of power yoga moves — can be the toughest kind of exercise you’ve tried. “I love this workout because it’s a serious core workout and challenge for every muscle in my body,” says Dashama Gordon, founder of the Pranashama Yoga Institute. “It’s a superhero workout that builds strength, flexibility, and balance while being fun and creative.”
Put yourself to the superhero test with these five sequences (we won’t fault you if all you can manage is a head shake while watching the how-to videos). The routine only takes 10 minutes, but we promise that’s all you’ll need to feel crushed.
