Here is a low impact exercise that will help shape your inner thighs.

How to do it:

Stand at a distance of a forearm from a solid chair or countertop and hold on lightly with your right hand. Step your feet hip-distance apart while pointing your toes straight ahead. Place a small sized soft ball or a pillow of the same size between inner thighs. With your left hand on your hip, lift your heels and try to balance on the balls of your feet. Bend your knees and lower down about one inch. Just imagine that you are sliding down an imaginary wall. Press your inner thighs into the ball while keeping your shoulders stacked over your hips, hips over ankles and your core tight. Raise hips up again and bring your left arm over your head while squeezing the ball with inner thighs. Lower by one inch to repeat. Do 30 reps and then repeat on the other side.

How to do it:

Stand with your feet together and arms above your head. Flex your spine laterally to make your arms and shoulders reach left while your hips sway towards the right.

Enter into a deep side lunge resting your left hand on your thigh and your right hand touching the floor. Push yourself off the floor and circle your arms back overhead in order to return to a lateral lean as your left foot returns to the right. Do 10 reps and repeat on the opposite side.
