We start the class in sitting and warm up our upper backs with a gentle cork screw and spine twist stretch. We then move into four-point kneeling where we gently mobilise our lower back with a tail swish and then strengthen our glutes with a leg lift and lower. In this position we also work our upper body and abdominals with a press up. Moving down onto our fronts we work on a swan dive and cobra stretch.
Coming around onto our backs we work on our control with a one leg stretch and bridge movements. We then cool down with a rotation stretch and glute stretch on our backs and a mermaid stretch in sitting.
