Surrendering everything to God

Give your legs a little love in this simple 34-minute class. After calming your mind and warming up your body with deep breathing and stretches that release tension in your head, neck, and shoulders, perform a series of calf raises, one-leg balance poses, and standing leg lifts. Take a quick break to stretch your sides and shoulders and open up your chest, and then move right into the main flow of the workout to stretch and strengthen your entire body. After repeating that flow three times on each side, transition to wide-leg posture for a forward fold and then heel-toe your feet in for a squat. Gracefully come down to the mat for more leg lifts and a quad stretch before pushing back to rock pose for the long hold. As you listen to the prayer for Day 4 of the Surrender Novena, allow the words to sink into your heart and encourage you to bring your worries to the Lord. Slowly move onto your back for a few wind-down stretches and one last twist, and then relax all your muscles as you turn your gaze to God during the resolution.
