Surrendering everything to God

Stretch the sides of your body and strengthen your back with the second to last workout of the Surrender Novena Series. You will begin this 37-minute Level 1 class in a comfortable cross-legged seated position, focusing on your breath, thoughts of gratitude, and placing yourself in God's presence. Warm-up with a series of stretches, bends, and safe twists that loosen any tightness or tension you may holding in your neck, shoulders, hips, and lower back. In the workout portion of the class, you can look forward to a standing backbend, low lunges, a full squat, calf raises, head and chest lifts, and other dynamic moves to hit every major muscle group in your body. Rest in rock pose for the long hold and work your core before winding down and lying back in quiet pose for the Resolution portion of the class. The Scriptures, prayers, and meditations remind you that God is good and trustworthy and invite you to ask for His help and consolation.
