A Time to Prepare Your Heart

Strengthen your core and take a step back from the hustle and bustle of the Advent season with Advent: Gettin to the Core. You will begin this 29-minute workout focusing on your breath and thinking of all the things you have to be grateful for. After a short warm-up to loosen your neck, shoulders, and back, you will work your entire midsection and shoulders with a series of forearm planks, side planks, push-ups, and backbends. Then engage your quads, lower abdominals, and obliques with challenging V-sits. Wind down in reclined inner thigh stretch, getting to the connective tissue and fascia as you meditate on the meaning of Advent and ways to prepare your heart for Christmas
