Better Posture, Stronger Back & Hips for All Ages, All-Time

Instructor: Kristine Chaussard
Level: Advanced, All Levels, Beginner, Intermediate

Focus :   

Today’s session focuses on glute and hip strength, posterior chain strengthening for that best posture, and standing balance. We will also work our side lifts as we have been doing in other workouts here to keep our sides strong. Class today is great for gate and stride, leg swing and glide. Great baseline exercises to always keep in your weekly routine to maintain healthy hips and a low back. The addition of the resistance band on the mat is essential for anti-aging work as it significantly increases the build and maintain of our strength. If you do mostly mat work, do make sure to regularly include resistance training as well for your bones to stay strong. Age gracefully, with strength, good posture and balance.

This is our ninth Anti-aging class. We hope this program is educational as much as it proves functional for your own self practice. We seek to answer the question:
