We will borrow from ballet to work WITH our body, and focus on how to monitor and combat a few common bad habits that can lead to injury if left unchecked.
This quick routine is a perfect way to start the day, or to use as a Check-in every once in a while in addition to other physical activities. Even those who are very advanced and fit can benefit from this deceptively simple routine!
We start with modified pliés, front and side bends, and proper form for seated toe-touches. Unlike ballet which focuses on a proper turnout which takes years to achieve, we focus on modified forms that work within our current safe range of motion. This routine focuses more on form and posture than cardio or strength training, so recommended as an add-on to other exercises.
Not recommended for those with knee or hip problems. Nude with a towel for the floor or loose clothing recommended as clothing can restrict our full range of motion. -NYV0123A
