Yoga to Tone Your Glutes

In this inspired new post, Dionne Elizabeth – a yoga teacher, DJ and writer who lives in Bergen, Norway – harmonizes music, blogging and yoga. Here, she shares the best yoga poses to improve your buns, which may, in true mind-body synchronicity, improve your life.

Here it is folks: We are already completely, marvelously, wildly, entirely who we were born to be.

At times this might not be clear to us, but the fact that we exist, that we are here together at this moment, and that you, dear reader, are on this page at this moment, is no coincidence. To meet each other at this point, somewhere along our separate journeys, really is absurd and wonderful.

We each have a mission, a function, a purpose. So how do we live our life to honour that?

This year, after 15 years of yoga practice and transforming my body, I found myself hitting a plateau. Though my practice regularly involves power moves like jumping forward into Crow Pose and holding Warrior Pose for a long time, my muscle tone seemed to be stuck on autopilot: never decreasing, but never really going to that next level, either.

We typically think of  “swim suit season” as the time of year we all focus on our buns. But I’ve been inundated with booty questions lately, so I thought I’d write about how to firm it up!
