If you’ve ever wanted to try a shoulder stand, now’s your chance! In this 43-minute Level 2 class, Jill will lead you through a slow and controlled full-body workout, allowing you to contract your muscles with intentionality. After calming your mind with deep breathing, you’ll warm up your body with familiar postures that stretch your neck, back, chest, sides, and hip flexors. V-sit, lifted leg, and lots of rolling will challenge your core and balance before giving the tricky shoulder stand a go. And don’t worry if you need to make modifications—Jill offers plenty of ways to adapt the shoulder stand and other poses for varying skill levels. As you relax into hip release for the long hold, the Scriptures and meditations will invite you to place your hope and trust in God and believe that He is working all things for your good.
