- Difficulty: Moderate
- Length: 20 minutes
This is a short class designed to engage and strengthen our glute muscles. This is a mat-based class working in both four-point kneeling and on our sides. Please remember to always work to a level that you feel safe and comfortable to do, particularly with the more challenging exercise sequences.
This class includes:
- Sitting arm opening stretch and mermaid stretch
- Side lying side kick
- Leg lift sideways
- Side bend with combined clam
- Four-point kneeling fire hydrants and donkey kicks
- Child pose stretch
- Leg lift and lower
- Pigeon pose glute stretch
- Cat stretch
- Kneeling arm circles
The class begins with a few gentle upper body stretches in sitting on the mat. We then move into side lying and challenge our glute muscle stretch with a side kick and leg lift sideways movement. Moving onto our elbow we then work our abdominals and glutes with a side bend, adding some clams for an extra challenge.
Changing position to four-point kneeling we work on our glute muscle strength and control further with some fire hydrants and donkey kicks and some leg lifts and lowers. From this position we then stretch out with a child pose and pigeon pose stretches. Finishing the class in kneeling with some arm circles.
