Theology of the Body

This 30-minute workout may look easy, but don't let your first impression fool you. Begin Theology of the Body: Glutes & Legs standing in posture pose, focusing on your breath and the many blessings in your life. A series of forward folds, gentle stretches, half-squats, and shoulder rolls will help you warm up your body and release any tension that you may have in your neck, shoulders, back, and hamstrings. Flow to pike and then perform a series of chest lifts to open up your chest and strengthen the muscles in your core and back. Come to prone (face-down) position—but don't get too comfortable. For the rest of the workout you will be doing multiple leg lifts and lunges, toning your hamstrings, quads, and glutes. Don't be surprised if your legs feel a little wobbly by the time you finish your last rep. Wind down with a long, deep hip stretch, gentle backbend, and final twist, which should feel good throughout your entire body. The Scriptures and meditation during this class will help you reflect on what it means to be a human being and will bring you comfort during times of solitude.Like this class?
