Want to get your group of 3 into shape with a great yoga workout? We’ve put together 11 dynamic poses to really get your blood flowing. Don’t worry if you’re just starting out – these poses are easy enough even if you’re new to yoga.
Triangle Pose is a great yoga exercise for 3 people. Start by standing side-by-side, with feet apart. Reach your hands up towards the ceiling and then lower your left hand down in front of your body and touch the ground. You’ll find your balance by pressing your feet into the ground. You and your partner should then get on one knee, placing the hands of the kneeling partner on either side of your head near your ears. You should both feel your respective knees press into each other. Finally, follow the lead of your partner and bring your heads together in triangle pose. Hold the pose for five to ten breaths. This pose helps to open your chest and strengthens your legs.
Tree Pose is an excellent way for 3 people to balance the body. To begin Tree Pose, stand together side-by-side with arms in line and feet together. Lift one leg off the ground and bring the heel of the lifted foot to the side of your lower leg. Make sure your knees are touching each other. Once you’ve found your balance, bring your hands in a prayer position and make sure your chest is up and your gaze is forward. Hold this posture for five to ten breaths. This pose will help tone your leg muscles and make you aware of your body’s balance.
Camel Pose is an advanced yoga exercise for 3 people. Start by standing side-by-side and placing your hands on the hips to adjust your hip-width distance. Keep your arms parallel to the ground and relax your shoulders. Then take a seat on the ground and place your hands on the lower back near your sacrum. Slowly begin to lean back, pressing your hands backwards and keeping your hips in line with your knees. Hold this pose for five to ten breaths. This pose stretches the spine and abdominal muscles, while also strengthening the arms, shoulders, and chest.
Cobra Pose will help 3 people to stretch their body and activate the spine. To start the pose, lie down face-first in a line, with your arms slightly away from your body. Lift your arms off the ground and place your hands by your chest. Inhale and press the hands firmly into the ground to lift your upper body slightly off the ground. Hold the pose for five to ten breaths. This pose is great for stretching the entire spine and toning the abdominal muscles.
Try this sequence of poses as a group, or practice them one by one. Either way, pay attention to your breath and move slowly – you’ll notice a difference after
