Britney Spears is staying fit in the new year.

In an Instagram video on Thursday, the singer gave her followers a glimpse at her yoga practice and shared some of her fitness goals for 2020. The footage showed Spears wearing a purple string bikini and cycling through a number of different yoga poses outside.

“Today I’m outside and I’m about to do a little bit of yoga to open up my back and my chest, and I’m out here with my dogs and we’re going to have a beautiful day,” Spears, 38, said in the beginning of the clip.

“In 2020 I will be doing a lot more acro yoga and the basics for yoga,” the pop star explained in her caption. “I’m a beginner and it’s kind of hard to let go …. learning to trust and letting someone else hold your body 😳 !!! I have a lot of things I keep bottled up so I have to keep my body moving !!!!”

In her caption, the “Toxic” singer” also commented on the beautiful January day.

“Thank God for Mother Nature …. she’s really no joke …. she grounds me and helps me find my feet and always opens my mind when I step outside …. !!!! I was lucky today with this beautiful weather 🍀🍀🌸🌸🌸☀️.”
