Get Motivated For Summer With A Nike Yoga Trainer
"On Diet" is not just a slogan.
As we near the end of April, the days are gradually getting longer and the temperatures are steadily rising.Summer officially starts to feel like it’s on its way. But with the idea of beach season fast approaching, so is the dreaded thought of getting ourselves beach body ready. With gyms closed due to COVID-19, home workout has quickly become the new normal. And as much as we love workout video tutorials, it can be difficult to motivate yourself when your sofa only sits 5 feet away, which is where Nike’s new yoga collection comes in.
Here to inspire your next at-home workout, Nike’s new selection of yoga workouts not only help to deliver the standard benefits of exercise, but they also help bring structure to your day and reframe your home space as somewhere you don't just rest in. Meaning, if there ever was a time to lean in to the at-home workout, it’s now. To celebrate the launch of its new yoga collection, Nike’s yoga coach Delia Leung is here to guide us along the path and teach us a few yoga moves that are suitable for beginners and easy enough to try at home. Not just about weight loss, these moves will get you stretching, clear your mind and most importantly, motivate you to get moving out of hibernation mode.
