Total Body Mobility, Strength, Posture & Balance, for All Ages, All-Time

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

Focus :   

Today we work the whole system as one using total body integration in functional and key movements and exercises that will keep you strong, mobile, balanced and with great posture in all ages. Much of today’s workout is standing and we incorporate the use of sliders. These exercises are a baseline and you are most likely very familiar with them. Stay strong in these moves as they greatly influence longevity and vitality. You’ll work shoulders, arms, hips, legs, core and postural muscles.

This is our seventh Anti-aging class. We hope this program is educational as much as it proves functional for your own self practice. We are responding to the following question:

“WHAT MOVEMENTS should I pay attention to include in my daily, and at least weekly, routine that will give me the best longevity and vitality for all ages and all-time?”

Repeat these classes as often as you like or reference the exercise list below for your own empowered practice.

Equipment Needed :     

Your mat, 1 pair of core sliders (or substitute with a towel or socks), 1 pair of light hand weights, and lastly station yourself near a wall.
