Step into the new year with purpose as you join Jill for this upbeat level 2 class, enlivened by forward-moving instrumental music. You will begin by deep-breathing in a seated position, which will help you relax and refocus as you prepare to strengthen your mind, body, and spirit. After warming up, Jill will lead you through a whole-body strengthening series that includes high-lunge, deep-lunge, arabesque, pike, lunge II, reverse lunge II, and angle pose. Jill adds variety to some of these well-known poses that will add an extra challenge to your obliques, abdominals, and balance. As you enter hip release for your long-hold, you will listen to a meditation on setting goals in the new year, making sure to include physical, intellectual, and spiritual goals. The bodily prayer verse will remind you that the Lord alone knows what is best for you--so be sure to plan with Him!
