- Child pose

The class starts by warming up and stretching the upper body with a bow and arrow stretch in standing. We warm up through our legs with some heels raises and leg lift sideways exercises.
We mobilise through the spine with some roll downs before walking out into a plank position whereby we add some pike movements too. We then open through the fronts of our hips in high kneeling with a hip flexor stretch. Moving down into four point kneeling we stretch our spines further with a cat stretch and upper body rotation movements.
Moving down onto our backs we challenge our core a little more with bridging, double leg stretch and scissors movements. We then open our through the spine with some spinal rotations and cool down with some glute and hamstring stretches.
We finish the class in sitting with some neck stretches and upper body reaches.
