Whether you’re not sure if you’re ready for a Level 2 class or you’re looking for a workout that will challenge you even more, give Live! from Home: Adapt a shot. Every posture and exercise in this 44-minute class can be modified to fit your skill level, meaning you can dial it back if you’re not quite there or add weights to work even harder. Like all Pietra Fitness workouts, you’ll begin by lengthening through the spine as you focus on your breath and thoughts of gratitude. Get the blood flowing with a few arm circles, side bends, hanging posture, and other gentle stretches that will warm up your entire body. After a few squats, come to hands and knees to work your back (specifically your rear delts), shoulders, and triceps. Engage your core to come to plank and elevated chest lift on toes, and then step into a deep lunge to stretch your inner thighs and hip flexors. Arabesque will challenge your balance and build strength, while V-sit and a shoulder stand will target all the muscles in your core. After relaxing into the long hold, you will roll onto your back for winddown stretches that open up your hip, stretch your hamstrings, and release any lingering tension in your back. The Scriptures and meditations will remind you that God is a loving Father who cares for you.
