Back attitude

Works your lower body and helps align and stabilize your hips.

Start: Stand facing the back of your chair (or barre, if available). Move your feet into first position and place both of your hands on the back of the chair.

Movement: Demi-plié, keeping your heels on the floor, then place your weight onto your right foot and extend your left leg back into a back attitude. Keep your right knee bent and hips forward. Press your leg back in small controlled movements, maintaining the turned-out position.

Perform: 8 repetitions slow then 16 repetitions fast. Return to start, switch legs and repeat.
