Lunges are a functional, powerful exercise that helps you to tone and strengthen almost every muscle in the lower body including the core, quads, hamstrings, glutes, and calves. You will also stretch the hip flexors. There are so many benefits to lunges, we just had to include them in this series. Once you feel confident with the intermediate class, challenge yourself in the advanced lunges class. The meditation will have you thinking about the feminine gift of sensitivity.
