Whether you already have muscular glutes and quads or you’re looking to strengthen your legs, Lent: Burns So Good will challenge your endurance. You will begin this 29-minute Level 2 class standing in posture pose, practicing deep breathing and focusing on gratitude. After warming up your body with side bends and pike pose, you will step right into high lunge. Take it up a notch with mountain climbers before coming into high lunge on the other side—and then repeat . . . twice. Catch your breath in rock pose and then flow into elevated chest lift on toes to strengthen your shoulders and entire core, stretch your abdominals, and open up your chest. Engage your core, glutes, quads, hamstrings, and calves as you sit back into half squat and raise up onto your toes. Keeping your heels lifted, slowly see how low you can go. Another series of squats and lunges will definitely have your legs burning! Wrap up with an intense hamstring and shoulder stretch before relaxing into hip release and a few final stretches. The Scriptures and meditations will help you reflect on your prayer life and invite you to make daily prayer a habit during Lent.
