Britney Spears kicked off 2020 by attempting to improve her flexibility while rocking a bikini. Unfortunately, her year began with a minor injury.
On Thursday, the pop star took to Instagram to share a few of her fitness plans with her 23.3 million followers. Britney also gave her fans a video demonstration of one key element of her exercise routine — yoga.
The singer took advantage of the sunny weather outside by rocking a string bikini for her workout video. It was a purple two-piece that featured a tiny floral print in white and teal. Britney also wore a pair of peach-colored sneakers, and she accessorized her unusual workout outfit with a white puka shell necklace.
Britney wore her blond hair pulled back in a ponytail, and she sported makeup that included dark eye shadow, smudged eyeliner, and dark pink lipstick.
The exercise video was filmed outdoors on a stone patio, where Britney had placed a yoga mat. She was joined by her two cute pet pooches. The Maltese and Yorkshire terrier have appeared in one of her Instagram videos before.
At the beginning of her clip, Britney revealed that she was doing yoga to open up her back and chest. First, she performed a quick warm-up dance where she rolled her neck and shoulders. Britney then got down on her mat to perform a few basic yoga moves. The first was a vinyasa transition that included plank, cobra, and downward-facing dog poses. She also gave the cat-cow pose her own unique spin by rolling her stomach and neck as she performed it, making it look like a dance move. Her last transition was a combination of the cobra and child’s pose.

The “Toxic” singer also divulged that she just recently started doing yoga, and she plans on incorporating a lot more of it in her fitness routine this year.
