The class is suitable for most levels and where possible easier and tougher options are demonstrated. It is important to always work to a level that suits you and you feel comfortable with. This class includes:

The class starts in standing warming up our upper body with a corkscrew movement and combining a side stretch. We then incorporate some glute strengthening with squats and combined leg extensions.

Rolling down into four-point kneeling we begin to mobilise our spines with a cat stretch movements and arm opening exercises. In this position with also work on our core and stability with a swimming exercise.

Moving down onto our backs on the back we work on hip control and movement with hip twist and scissors exercises. We also mobilise our spines further with a bridge and combine some arm raises with this movement.

We cool down in sitting with some gentle leg and upper body stretches.

    Thanks Vicky, that was one of my favourite classes yet. I feel so much better for a good stretch, and the side taps really worked my stability.

    Great class to stretch out, after a day sat in front of a computer followed by some gardening. Thank you!
