Yoga Booty Workout

This yoga booty workout incorporates classic yoga poses with dynamic booty-toning exercises for a fun, challenging beachside workout.

Beach season is in full swing in L.A., and I’ve been seizing every opportunity to hit the sand and soak up a little Vitamin Sea.

I live in mid-city and getting to the beach can take a while if you hit traffic. So the hubs and I like to get there early on the weekend, which means missing our favorite Saturday morning yoga class.

On a recent outing to try out Billabong’s new WarholSwim collection, I decided to make up for missing my beloved class by creating my own beachside Yoga Booty Workout.

This stretching and strengthening circuit is a total body toner but specifically targets those quads, hamstrings, and glutes.

It takes about 20 minutes to complete, and can be done anywhere – though I highly recommend a blue, breezy backdrop 😉

Try it out on your next leg day or when your summer beach read gets boring.

Btw – my new suit held up great during the workout. The top provides full coverage for even the toughest twists and bends. Plus, it’s super cute.

The Warholsurf line is based off famous prints from the artist and women’s swimwear retails for $55 to $95. Check out more stylish summer pieces on Billabong.com.
