Three Yoga Moves To Do Every Day

You may know Trish Stratus as the high-flying, body-slamming World Wrestling Entertainment Diva with multiple championship belts in her closet. From 2000-2006, Stratus was a fixture on WWE broadcasts, and since her retirement in 2006 has made several guest appearances in the ring.

What you may not know is that Stratus has another love: yoga. Trish became a believer when she turned to Bikram Yoga to help her with a herniated disk in her lower back. Quickly it became a passion and management tool for her injuries in the ring and the stress of being on the road 250-300 days of the year. In 2008 she opened Stratusphere Yoga, a multi-studio facility in Vaughan, Ontario! 

Trish's decade-long passion for yoga is also reflected in her line of fitness products, Stratusphere Living, which includes her first workout DVD. Her combination of yoga and strength training movements are sure to work up a sweat!

Being the yoga aficionado that she is, we asked Trish Stratus to show us her top three yoga moves that you should do every day. (Watch the video - Three Yoga Moves You Should Do Every Day)

She demonstrated: 

Tree pose: for improving your balance.
