We begin the class with some gentle stretches in sitting including a ‘Y’ stretch and spine twist movements.

Moving onto our sides we work our glute muscles with a clam exercise, adding some toe taps for an extra challenge. Onto our elbows we then work our glute and abdominals with an ab curl and stretch. 

We then come down onto our backs and work our core and abdominals further with scissors, abdo prep with leg stretch and lower and bridge exercises. Cooling down with a rotation, glute and hamstring stretches. Finishing in sitting with shoulder rolls and neck stretch and a mermaid stretch.

    Vicki, I just made my small annual donation; wish I could give more, since your classes are so beneficial. A QUESTION. Is there a way to save or store the classes that work best for me?
