Seema is partnering with Express.co.uk to provide a few home moves Britons can do using a cushion, if they don’t have a block of a yoga block, and a chair, sofa or stool.
She revealed there would be five exercise in total, doing 45 seconds on and 15 seconds off, performed as a circuit.
Once you have completed the circuit you are going take a minute of recovery and and then repeat the whole circuit twice more, making three circuits in total.
The first exercise on the list is a side lunge, using the cushion to slide the foot across the floor.
Seema said: “Get into a side lunge position, bending the standing knee and putting one leg out side the side.
“All you are going to do is bring the knee in and extend it again.
“You have 45 seconds here before you change sides. It’s the standing leg where you feel the work.”
The next exercise is a split squat.

Seema said: “You are going to bring your back foot on top, either on your toes or resting on your foot, whatever’s easier.
“You’re going to drive that back knee down towards the ground.
“Tuck your tailbone under, strengthen through that core and drive down and squeeze up.”
She added: “Bend the back knee, so you are not overloading the front knee.”
Do 45 minutes on one leg, then change sides and do the same thing with the other leg out in front of you.
