Section 2
  • In this first class, you’ll do exercises that activate every part of your legs, especially your feet and calves. First you’ll learn and practice a movement, and then you’ll put it into a sequence to further challenge your strength, flexibility, and balance. Get ready to do knee lifts in virasana (hero pose), toe lifts in various positions, pistol squats, “flointing work” in down dog and up dog, and more.
  • Mobility and strength are the name of the game in this class. You’ll begin with mobility drills in virasana, “around the world” hip openers that emphasize internal and external rotation, and then progress through deeper variations of pigeon that involve dynamic movement in and out of the pose. Then, you’ll move into the strengthening part of the practice with lots of leg lifts, foot activating work in skandasana (side lunge), single leg lunges and hamstring curls from standing, and more.
  • In this session, you’ll fire up your whole core with supine abdominal work, lots of blanket slide variations—including forearm plank and single-leg versions—and use a block for resistance work with a variety of core contractions.
  • In this workout for your arms and shoulders, you’ll do side tricep rises, chaturanga pulses, lots of work moving down through chaturanga and back up in stages, prone arm work with weights and blocks, diamond push-ups, and more. Feel those arms burn! Props: 2 blocks, 2 hand weights
  • Put everything you’ve learned together in this final session. Get ready to flow and raise your heart rate with a dynamic sequence that will leave you feeling both balanced and exhilarated. Props: blocks
