We all need a strong core to protect our spine and joints from injury. We are not talking about six-pack abs here, but a genuinely healthy core that will keep your body stable as you move and exercise. Breathing is an integral part of engaging your core, and Betsy gives you ample opportunity in this 31-minute Gentle class to breathe as you work on a stable mid-section. As you practice this class regularly, you will start to see that you are training your body to activate your core muscles and will begin to see a difference in the way that you move throughout the day as well as in your Pietra Fitness classes. The meditation will help you to contemplate mercy and being merciful.
