Want a body like Jennifer Aniston? Celebrity yoga instructor Mandy Ingber stopped by "Summer Shape Up" to show us how to get a killer bod like her A-list client. Mandy created the DVD "Yogalosophy," which pairs a yoga pose with a toning exercise. In addition to Jen, Mandy incorporates the "Yogalosophy" moves with her other celebrity clients such as Kate Beckinsale, Woody Harrelson, and Helen Hunt to name a few. Here are a few yoga moves that Mandy recommends to achieve a sleek summer body.
Side Plank: Begin in plank position and turn to balance on one arm. Lift up your waist and place one foot slightly in front of the other. Try holding for eight reps on each side.
Triceps Push-Up: Begin this exercise in plank position. Graze your ribs with your elbows. Lead with your chest while lowering down, and keep your body nice and straight. Do five to eight reps.
3-Legged Dog/ Knee Ins: Begin in downward facing dog position. Extend your leg up, then shift your body weight forward and bring your knee towards your forehead and then back into 3-legged dog. Be sure to round your upper back when you bring your knee in. Try doing five to eight reps on each side.
Boat V-ups: Begin in a seated position, and lean back slightly while holding in your abs. Lift your feet up off the floor, and extend your arms out directly in front of you. Lower your upper and lower body down, and use your abdominals to bring yourself back up into the boat pose. Do eight reps and hold for five breaths.
Try doing each exercise at least three to five times a week.
