Are you looking for an opportunity to perfect your standing postures while building greater strength? Live! from Home: Polish Your Postures is for you! In this slower-moving, level 2 class, you will begin seated for your warm-up before transitioning to the standing postures that make up the majority of the workout section. Jill offers numerous cues as you spend time in each posture, giving you the opportunity to polish your postures as you gain strength. The lunge II-reverse-lunge II-angle pose-open arabesque series will strengthen the legs, knees, ankles, arms, core, and glutes and stretch the groins, chest, and lungs. Next, you will follow Jill into arabesque, high-lunge, extended leg-reach and standing half-linked backbend, which will challenge your balance and strengthen your legs, ankles, and back muscles. See what muscles you notice as you hold these poses more intentionally today--you may be surprised at what you feel! As you hold hip-release on each side for your long-hold, Jill will read a meditation about taking responsibility for your actions as a step toward healing. After your cool-down stretches, you will enter quiet pose and enjoy Gregorian chant as you consider what miracles God can work in you when you acknowledge your sins and failings.
