The class begins in standing working on movement control with a balance series and combined hip twist and arm opening movement. We then work our legs with a side plie, rotating each side from here into static lunges. We then challenge our balance further with a forward reach before rolling down onto our fronts to continue the class.
On our fronts we combine our arm and leg movements with a swimming exercise then work our upper body with a swan dive. WE then stretch our spines into extension with a cobra stretch. Moving onto our sides we work up on our elbows for an abdominal curl. We then work our glutes with a combined leg lift sideways and fold and stretch. Staying on our sides we mobilise into our upper back with an arm opening stretch.
We then continue the class onto our backs working our core control with a combined scissors and hip twist. We then continue to work on our movement control combining arm and leg movements with a bridge, leg stretch and arm reaches and double leg stretch. We then cool down with a rotation stretch and glute stretch and finish in sitting with arm openings.
