Strength training improves posture, balance, muscle tone and bone health. It has a positive effect on our mood and confidence too!
Due to the amount of time many of us spend in forward flexion (sitting, driving, phone-scrolling, etc…), our hip flexors, chest muscles, buttocks, hamstrings, upper and lower back muscles can become tight and weak. This program focuses on developing strength and stability in those areas and will have you standing a little straighter, walking a little taller and feeling a little more resilient by the end.
What to expect:
- 12, strength-focused, mood-boosting, 30(ish!) minute classes
- 3 classes per week with a focus on upper body strength; lower body strength; core
- A gradual build-up in challenge from All level to Level 2 practices
- Classes with a variety of teachers
Who is it for?
This program is ideal for those who already have a base level of strength and fitness. It's reasonably challenging, beginning with All level and Level 1/2 classes and building up to Level 2 classes. If you are looking for a more gradual way to build up strength and fitness, we suggest you follow our Get fit and healthy in 10 days program first.
The idea is to practice three classes per week. EkhartYoga members have unlimited access to these classes so you can take it quicker or slower and repeat the practices you find beneficial.
