Proper form and alignment can be the difference between an okay workout and an excellent workout, or between an injury and a strong, healthy body. That’s why we started our Back to Basics classes—to teach you proper form and alignment for fundamental Pietra Fitness postures. With cues and tips and reminders as to which muscles you are working, Betsy will guide you through this 38-minute Gentle workout, helping you perfect posture pose and high lunge. And that’s not all. Calf raises, heel walks, and other exercises will challenge your balance and engage all your muscles. Light twists, bends, and folds will gently stretch your body, helping you sit and stand taller. The Scriptures and meditations will open your eyes to God’s incredible love for you and invite you to allow Him into your heart even more.

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