Joy in the Resurrection

Want a full body workout? The compound exercises in this class target and utilize multiple major muscle groups and joints so you can work your entire body in just 36 minutes. You will begin Easter: Resurrection sitting in a cross-legged seated position, calming your mind and nervous system with deep breathing and thoughts of gratitude. Immediately fire up your core by sitting back on your sitz bones and incorporating different arm and leg movements that challenge your balance and engage all the muscles in your midsection. Finish warming up with a few gentle stretches and side bends before coming to your hands and knees to work your glutes, hamstrings, and hip flexors. Come to plank, engaging your core, shoulders, back, and quads, and then open up your chest with elevated chest lift on toes. Lunge 2, Open Arabesque, and more will test your stability and leave you feeling like you just got an excellent workout. Wind down with Hip Release and feel-good stretches that will loosen up tight muscles and increase your range of motion. The Scriptures and meditations will open your eyes to the reality of what Jesus did for you when he rose from the dead, filling you with immense joy and newness of life.
