Here at Outdoorsy, we believe wellness extends beyond the body to the mind and soul. We also believe that wellness and the outdoors go hand in hand. For these reasons, we’ve partnered with Brooke Burke Body to keep both you and your RV moving.

So, without further ado, we present an RV-friendly workout routine to help you stay active on the road. Grab your mat and let’s get started!

RV-Friendly Yoga Routine

Brooke Burke led us through 10 yoga moves you can do anywhere you are — at home, on the road, or in the park. Do each move for 30 seconds, or 10 to 15 reps on each side.

1. Toe Touch Warmup

Before anything, you’ll want to wake up your muscles. Step your feet a bit wider than hip-width apart and take your arms up into a t-shaped formation. Use your core to drop down to touch the opposite hand to the opposite foot and lift back up. Switch from side to side, keeping your core engaged, shoulders relaxed, and breath present.

This move opens up the hamstrings and stretches out the back and shoulders. Then, put your hands on the ground to shake out your shoulder before moving into the next pose.

2. Goddess Squat & Twist

Roll up to standing. Hold that wide stance, point your toes out, and bend your knees. Keep your shoulders back and core engaged. Lift your arms into a goal post formation. This works your arms, back, shoulders, abs, and thighs.

From there, squat and lift one leg up and twist to the opposite side, bringing opposite knee to opposite elbow. Squat and switch to the other side, moving mindfully and working all the muscle groups.

3. Goddess Side Crunch

Drop back down into that goddess squat and place your hands behind your head. After you’ve got your footing, reach your elbow towards your knee. This works your abs, mainly your obliques. Make sure you’re taking deep breaths.

4. Downward Dog

Keep your wide stance and walk your hands to the front of the mat. Melt your heart down, relax your shoulders, and come into a wide downward dog. Rock back and forth, stretching through the legs, then move your feet together. Peddle the legs.

5. Mountain Climbers

Once you’ve stretched, come into a strong plank pose. Bring your knee forward to touch the opposite elbow and switch. Move slowly and mindfully. Don’t forget to breathe!

6. Child’s Pose to Pushup

Finally, it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for — child’s pose. Drop your knees, walk your hand forward, and melt your heart back. Relax your body into the pose.

But wait, there’s more! From there, transition into a “lady’s pushup.” Move from your center out of child’s pose and into a pushup with your knees on the ground and feet lifted. Here, you stretch out your upper body, while also working out your core.

From there, relax back into your child’s pose, take your arms wide (spider arms) and move side to side, stretching through the back.

7. Twistie Kickback

Make your way to tabletop position, knees underneath the hip points, and wrists underneath the shoulders. Lift your right leg up high, point your toes, and squeeze your glutes.

From there, bring your leg across your body to the opposite side of the mat, sit on that leg, keep your chest and glutes lifted. Move using your abs and glutes to come back to that leg-lifted position and repeat.

Do 10 or 15 reps. Before switching sides, bring that leg through into a pigeon pose to open up your hip flexors. Take a moment then switch.

8. Bear Plank

Come back into a plank position with your feet together. From there, crawl one foot up to the middle of your mat and then the other. Move back to plank and do it again, switching which foot you lead with each time.

Take a second in child’s pose and then come onto your back.

9. Leg Wave

On your back, place your arms at your sides and lift your legs up high. Lower your legs down to hover over the ground.

From there, bring your knees in and then your legs back up. Repeat.

Next, you’re going to switch the direction of your wave — bring your knees in, press your legs out to hover, and then lift them up. Repeat.

10. Leg Circles

You’re almost done! Come back to tabletop position for one more “booty burn.” Drop onto one elbow and lift the opposite leg up. Let the head hang heavy, and move your leg in a counterclockwise circle. Then, move in a clockwise circle. Do this on both sides.
