13 Minute Yoga Sequence for Summer-Ready Abs (Video)

This 13-minute yoga sequence is all about the core!
A strong core means great looking abs and a healthy spine. Many of us seek strong, defined abs, but traditional crunches and other old-school techniques only focus on certain abdominal muscles, which means that the rest are being neglected.
Therefore, it is important to practice a variety of different core workouts to ensure you’re giving all your abdominal muscles the love and strengthening they deserve! A strong core also translates to a strong and healthy spine, because a strong core will support your spine in yoga and other physical fitness exercises.
Follow along with Ashton August as she shows you her favorite yoga poses for abs.


This sequence consists of the following yoga poses:

  • Sunbird Crunches
  • Plank Pose (with step-outs)
  • One Leg Chaturanga Flow
  • Mountain Climber Variation
  • Downdog Crunches
  • Fallen Triangle Leg Lift
  • Fingertip Abs Flow
  • Navasana / Boat Pose
  • Medicine Ball Flow
  • Reclined Butterfly Crunches
