Abs and core – standing and mat work
Abs and core core workout with a variety of movements and stretches
Included in this class:
- Chest openings (dumb waiter) with heel raises
- Side bends
- Leg extensions in 4 point kneeling
- Child pose stretch
- Side kicks
- Oblique lifts
We start this class in standing with some nice stretches to warm us up before beginning some heel raises and side bends.
Rolling down onto the mat we then move into the downward dog position to stretch through our bodies as well as a focus on stretching our calfs.
Then, in 4 point kneeling we work our core with leg extension movements – make sure you go to a level that suits you. We then take time to stretch in the child pose position before moving onto our side. Here we work through a series of side kick, and oblique lift movements.
Lastly we warm down in sitting with a short series of stretches.
