This is a 30 minute athletic stretch & athletic yoga workout. Michelle leads with a group of exercisers in a large white & hardwood room. You will need your PeakFit Band for this workout. This is the active recovery dvd included in the set. The workout is intended to increase balance, strength, & flexibility and includes flowing standing sequences and floor stretches.
Exercises include: a sun breath series (a faster paced athletic sun salutation series), low sumo w/ a stretch, torso rotations, chair squats w/ big arms, yoga lunges, flowing curtsy, pulsing side lunges, hip rotations, a nice warrior sequence, plank pikes, and lower body stretches using the band on the floor.
This workout is suitable for all fitness levels- everything was straight forward- no complicated poses or super stretchy stretches. This is pretty athletic in nature but does include some nicely paced yoga-esque poses. Perfect for those of us that want to get in more yoga but arent huge yogi's. Michelle does a great job of stretching the muscles with flowing dynamic sequences.
