This 36-minute level 1 class will work every major muscle group. Remember, in Pietra Fitness, “Level 1” means our moderate level. You begin in posture pose, with deep breathing and gratefulness. As Betsy reminds us here, deep breathing is great for your digestion! The soft, but slightly upbeat guitar music adds just the right ambiance as you flow seamlessly with Betsy through your strengthening and stretching postures today. Your legs and core will be strengthened as you move through half-squats and rotating half-squats in the warm-up followed by a flow in the work-out section in which you hold Lunge II as you move with your breath through reverse Lunge II and side-reach. You will stretch your hamstrings throughout the workout with a variety of both standing and seated wide-leg folds as well as a quad stretch. In seated position, V-sit with toe-taps will strengthen your abdominal and back muscles, before you move into hip-release for your long-hold to lengthen and relax your connective tissue and listen to the meditation. The scripture and meditation remind us that we are the tenants in God’s vineyard and prompts us to consider his great love in sending His Son and how we ought to respond.
