The class starts in standing warming up our upper body and legs before rolling down into four-point kneeling to continue the class. As much as possible different levels for the exercises as demonstrated so please always work to a level that suits you and you feel safe to do.

This class includes:

  • Standing chest opening and cleopatra
  • Toy soldier
  • Squats with heel raises
  • Backward lunge and hip flexion
  • Roll downs
  • Four-point kneeling tail swish
  • Leg kicks and one leg circle
  • Child pose
  • Press ups
  • Side leg tap forwards and back
  • Side kick
  • Abdo prep with double leg stretch
  • Bridging
  • Criss-cross
  • Opposite arm and leg stretch
  • Glute and hamstring stretches
  • Sitting toy soldier arms and upper body reach stretch

We start the class in standing with some upper body stretches and toy soldier movements. Then challenge our leg control with some squats and lunge movements. Rolling down into four-point kneeling we begin by opening out through our lower back with a tail swish and then work on some leg control with a leg kick and one leg circles. Staying in four-point kneeling we then work on some upper body strengthening with some press ups.

Moving down onto our sides we continue to challenge our leg control with a side leg tap forwards and back as well as a side kick movement. From here we move around onto our backs and work on some abdominal strengthening with some abdominal prep and leg stretches and bring in our obliques with a criss-cross movement. We then gently stretch out through our lower back and legs with some stretches before finishing in sitting with some upper body stretches.
