Crescent Lunge gets your heart rate up, which helps speed up your metabolism. It also strengthens your legs and stretches your hips.
How to: Begin in downward dog pose. Step your right foot between your hands. Lower your hips into lunge position and shift your weight onto the ball of your back foot, bringing your hands to your hips. Stay up on the ball of your back foot and lift your upper body so that you're standing straight up. Keep your hips squared the entire time. Bring your arms above you and reach for the ceiling. Palms should be facing each other. Hold for 30 seconds to 1 minute and then switch sides.
