Are you feeling overwhelmed? Is fear preventing you from living your life to the fullest? The inspiring music, motivating meditations, and empowering exercises in this Level 1 class will fill you with hope, courage, and strength. You will begin Live! from Home: Liberation sitting tall in a comfortable seated position, working on your breath. After warming up your body, you’ll come to hands and knees to work your core, shoulders, and glutes in kneeling balance. Low lunge will stretch your hip flexors, and a gentle twist will increase the mobility in your spine. Work your quads with squats before holding a plank. (Add some push-ups if you’re up for the challenge.) Strengthen your back with elevated chest lift and a linked backbend, and then transition to standing for a Lunge 2 series that incorporates a side reach, angle pose, and wide-leg posture pose. Work on your balance in standing linked backbend before flowing back to seated for a long inner thigh stretch. The Scriptures and meditations will remind you that there is nothing to fear when we keep our eyes on Jesus.
