This Body Ballet move from Lake Austin Spa Resort  class builds that all-important core strength, and gives your legs a great stretch, besides. Instructor Katherine Coffee takes you through it.

A. Sit propped up on your elbows and forearms, shoulders rolled back and down and elbows underneath shoulders. Relax your hands at your sides, palms facing down. Tighten your abdominals as you lift legs to a 90-degree bend.

B. Extend your left leg out just above the floor as you extend your right leg up toward the sky; switch sides. Do 12 on each side.
