Perfect high lunge, lunge 1, lunge 2, and pike pose in this 36-minute Foundational Postures class. Just like Live! from Home: Back to Basics 1, Betsy will use cues and tips to guide you through Live! from Home: Back to Basics 2 to teach you proper form and alignment of these four fundamental Pietra Fitness postures. You will begin standing in good posture pose, focusing on your breath and thoughts of gratitude. Loosen up the muscles in your neck, arms, sides, and lower legs before flowing to pike to warm up the backside of your body. And now the real work begins . . . Strengthen your quads, hamstrings, glutes, and core and challenge your balance with three different types of lunges. In between each lunge posture, feel-good stretches will bring relief to the muscles that you just worked. The more you engage your muscles in the lunges, the more relaxed you’ll feel when you lie back in reclined inner thigh stretch for the long hold. The Scriptures and meditations will remind you that failure doesn’t define us; the important thing is to keep trying.

Whether you’re new to Pietra Fitness or you’ve been doing Pietra Fitness for a while, you can benefit from our Foundational Postures classes. Look for more of these workouts in our online studio or join us live on Friday.
