Master Baptiste Yoga teacher Leah Cullis, who will lead YJ's upcoming online course Pillars of Power Yoga(sign up here to be the first to know when the course launches), created this advanced core-strengthening sequence with Leap Frog hops—the perfect pick-me-up for a blah day.

Inversions can help you get out of your head and into your body, and they're also really fun and empowering. In this core-strengthening sequence, we’ll build up to Leap Frog hops (sometimes called Donkey Kicks)—a great fix for those days when you're feeling just a little too serious.

Before you begin this sequence, warm up with at least 3 rounds of Sun Salutation A and Sun Salutation B. After you complete the sequence, I recommend finishing with 10 breaths in Half Pigeon on each side, a Seated Forward Bend, and a supine twist on each side. Generate ujjayi breath to set the pace for your practice.
