We begin the class in sitting with some gentle upper back stretches. We then move into four-point kneeling to mobilise the spine with a cat stretch movement. We then engage our core and lengthen through the body with a swimming exercise, finishing the sequences by opening out through our backs with a child pose stretch. Down onto our sides we then work on strengthening our glutes with a clam exercise before opening our through our upper back and chest a little more with an arm opening stretch.
Moving onto our backs we then continue to engage and strengthen through our pelvic floor and deep abdominal core muscles with a one leg stretch, bridging and hip twist movements. We then gently stretch out through our lower back and glutes muscles before finishing the class with a mermaid stretch in sitting.
