Looking for a slow-paced workout with soothing music, gentle stretches, and ways to modify each posture to fit your skill level and flexibility? Your Rhythm has all that and more. You will begin this very gentle 28-minute class sitting comfortably on your mat, focusing on your breath and calling to mind the things you are grateful for. Warm up with easy twists, forward folds, shoulder rolls, and a triceps stretch to loosen up your spine, stretch your hips and back, open up your chest, and release tension in your neck and shoulders. Roll up to hands and knees to work your spine, stretch hamstrings, and challenge your balance. Come back to seated for feel-good stretches for your inner thighs, lower back, ankles, and feet. Slowly flow to standing to work your core, obliques, and calves. Spend a few breaths in Lunge 2, strengthening your quads, glutes, and hamstrings, before returning back down to your mat for the long hold and winddown. The Scriptures and meditations remind you that you are a beloved child of God and invite you to contemplate this incredible gift.
