The class starts by warm up through our legs and upper body with a ‘Y’ stretch with heel raises. We then rotate through the upper body and combine in some hip flexion movement. We then challenge our stability and control with some lunges and single leg reaches.
We roll down from standing into four-point kneeling and continue to strengthen tough our core and upper body with a leg pull in prone, challenging the movement further with a leg lift movement. In this position we work our upper body a little more with a tricep fold kick. We then work our glut muscle in a high kneeling position with leg lift and a side kick movement.
Moving down onto our backs we work our abdominals a little more with a bridge and combined abdo prep and double leg extension movement. Cooling down from the class with some gentle lower back and leg stretches.
