Christmas: Total Tone Up isn’t just for Christmas morning or the Christmas season. It’s the perfect class for days when you need a quick workout that will engage your whole body and fill your soul with awe. You will begin this 35-minute class with deep breathing, focusing on all the blessings in your life. After warming up your body with gentle stretches, you will work your shoulders, back, and entire core in kneeling and seated postures. Recruit the muscles in the rest of your body as you flow to standing and perform a series of twists and side bends. But don’t get too comfortable—high lunges, squats, planks, and more will challenge your balance. Whether you have tight hip muscles or not, the longhold will leave you feeling a little more flexible than when you began this class. As you settle into hip release, you are invited to meditate on the joy of Christmas and to reflect on the incredible gift God gave us in Jesus.
