Fitness: Beach Ready Yoga

Later this month we are lucky enough to go on a family beach vacation to Cancun, Mexico. We are in quick need of toning fitness moves to get us bikini ready! It is not often in Portland that we get to wear our bikini, let alone show off our calves in all the rain. We found two great Jillian Michaels yoga videos that do the trick. They are challenging without feeling like you are bulking up. She uses a method of yoga with high intensity reps evolved from classic yoga moves. Here are some pictures of us doing  our favorite toning moves.

Here is the link to the videos, Jillian Michaels Yoga Meltdown Level 1 and Level 2. We were thrilled to have sunny weather in Portland this weekend because usually we practice yoga in Ellie's tiny bedroom. It can get quite cramped!
