Live! from Home: Habit Forming is a 32-minute gentle class that is all on the mat (no standing postures). The stringed instrumental music will help you ease into the class as you begin deep breathing in the supine position. As you consider the blessings you are grateful for today, Betsy will help you remember the blessing of God’s love for you right where you are today. After warming up through various stretches in cross-legged seated position and hands and knees position, you will move into the gentle workout. You will strengthen your back muscles through an ab balance with scissors, your quads and abdominals with a kneeling quad exercise, and your thighs in low lunge. You will stretch your thighs, groins, and psoas as well as the surrounding connective tissue as you stay in hip-release for the long-hold. The Scripture and meditation today will encourage you to practice daily meditative prayer, even if you don’t feel that you have great inspirations--the simple act of spending time with God is worthwhile--your friendship with God will grow, and God will do His work in you, sometimes without your noticing.
