Thanks for joining me, ladies. Today we're going to utilize the band and two pound weights in class. So let's begin, taking your feet under your band about hip distance apart. Lengthen up through your legs, find a neutral spine. And energy through the crown of the head, we're going to inhale.

(breathes in) Big breath. Exhale, release your chin to your chest and slowly roll your spine forward letting the band draw you down, you're going to lose tension. Lean your weight slightly forward, take a breath at the bottom, inhaling and then exhale as you start to roll your spine up, utilizing the band, kinda resist and if you want you can make it a little more taut. And then give me a little bit of an open upper back extension. And then exhale, release the chin.

Let's do three of these, exhale lifting your diaphragm as you roll forward, letting the head go, releasing any tension, lean your weight slightly forward. Inhale and now roll it up exhaling, articulating through your spine. Give me an upper back extension, opening up the hips, reaching upward. And last time, exhaling go forward, lifting the diaphragm. Inhale at the bottom, big breath, exhale let it all out, rolling through your back.

Start articulating, open your chest. And come to neutral. Good, we're going to keep the band underneath and you're going to sit down on your mats, bringing your feet in front of you. (laughing) Exactly. Stretch your legs out.

Legs are together, feet are flexed, lift up, take an inhale. We're going to roll the spine down, exhaling. We're going to just spinal mobility, lengthening back down, open the shoulders, good. Inhale, come up just partway your upper back and exhale roll up and over. Try to get your band a little more open.

Good, pull on your band and let's just hinge forward. Take a breath here. And reach your arms and we're going to roll back down, exhaling, articulating the sacrum, the lower back and the head is last. Inhale up, let's do five. Exhale, curl up and over, let that low back go into the mat.

Lean forward and draw your elbows back. Try to get a flat back here. Inhale reach your arms and then we're going to roll back down. Exhaling, curl the tail under, imprint the sacrum, lower back and lengthen your spine all the way down. Curl up inhaling, good.

Exhale, draw your navel in, curl that lower back. Releasing, pull your elbows back toward your hips. Flatten and give me a nice anterior tilt in the sacrum and release your arms and let's roll down. Let's do one more. (breathes out) Exhaling. (breathing) Head is last and again.

Inhale here, exhale up and over. (breathes out) Curl, I'm going to inch myself forward here. Pull on the band, reach your arms and start to slowly roll down. Exhaling, bend your knees, take your legs tabletop. Keep your chest up and your elbows down.

We're going to do footwork, so we're going to push out, exhale here. Good, inhale, stretch your legs on a 45 degree angle, inhale as you bend. Keep the feet flexed, exhale extend fully. Inhale, good, let's do five more. Exhale here, good.

And reach away, nice long line. And push into your band, inhale. If you want more tension, go ahead and give yourself a little bit more. And two more, push those heels, keep those feet neutral. Last one, hold it out, inhale, externally rotate so you're in a V position.

Bend, we're going to do another set of eight. Exhale out, squeeze your inner thighs and pushing out, two, good. Lengthen, three. If you feel tension in your neck, you can lower your chest down and do the footwork without your head up. Good, and three more.

Three, pressing two, one more time, one. Let's bend your knees, lower your chest for a moment. And let's open the legs out, abducting, and lift your chest. Exhale, push out for another eight. Inhale here, nice.

And two, extend fully, pushing out. Three, good, keep breathing, extend long. And reach. Good, three more, keeping that abduction in your band. Good, make sure the knees are in line with your heels.

One more time, inhale and push out, bend your knees. Take your left foot out and let's lower that left leg and let's lower the head, good. We're going to leg circles so adjust your band if you need to. Reach out through the heel, we're going to go towards the midline. Inhale, circle around, and exhale around.

Draw the leg in towards you to find that nice hamstring stretch. Good, let's do two more. Circle, good. And last time, hold it here, let's reverse the direction. Take it out and around and up.

Inhaling and exhale, lengthening that opposite leg on the mat. Good, let's do three more here. Reaching out through the heel, nice deep flex of the foot. Hold it here at the top, let's just do a little hamstring stretch. Lower the leg a little bit and then use your arms to gently pull but don't let that band roll off your foot.

Good, and again, pull it in for five. Lower the leg, let it rock. Three, last two, draw in. I love the band and one more. Gives you that extra resistance and then cross the leg towards the midline, lowering that hip towards your left heel.

Let's bend the knee slightly and then push out for five again. Bend and extend out. You should feel that in the lateral part of the leg. Good, try to keep that hip down and one more and bring it center, open the leg out to the side. You can draw up with the opposite arm, pulling and get that adductor to open up.

Reaching out, good. Bring it back to the center and switch to the other side. Left food under the band, lower your right leg, flex your foot. We're going to go into our circles toward the midline. Inhaling around, good and exhale.

Nice, you can lift your chest if you'd like. And reach out, four, good, let's do two more. Circling the leg, opening up that hip, stretching the hamstring. Reverse your direction and inhale and around. (breathes out) And three, nice way to set you up for what's to come next.

Hold here at the top, holding, bring it across the midline, crossing, bend the knee and then stretch. And two, let's do five, just little small bends and extends, reaching out through the heel. Opening up the back of the knee. And one more. Ah and bring it center and lower the leg.

Inhale here and let's draw in for that hamstring stretch. (breathes in) And two. Good, three more. Last time, and pull it all the way in, elbows to your side. Open that leg out.

For the adductor stretch you can take your arm over your head. (breathes in) Just nice breath inhaling, lengthening the opposite leg down. Take your arm down, bring it back to center. Let's place both feet under your band, we're going to go into the hundred. So you're going to place the band right under the ball of the foot and the toes.

So lower the legs about 60 degrees and just lift your chest up. Find a nice comfortable position so that band does not roll off your feet. If you prefer you can take it 90, but let's try here. Good, 45 to 60 degrees, we're going to use our arms. Let's go inhaling five and exhale.

(breaths out) And two, get some tension in the band and make sure you're working from the triceps and the back. Exhaling, inhale two three four five and out two three four, creating heat. (breathes out) And in, two three four five and out two three four five and- (breathes out) Two more cycles, keep pumping from the arms and the back. (breathes out) One more time, big breath in and exhale everything out, bend your knees and take your legs back up. Good, let's lift our chest, lower the legs down, exhale double leg lowers.

Let's take the elbows to the mat and inhale up. Exhale, let's do six, lower the legs as low as you can, keeping that neutral pelvis position and not arching in the low back. And exhale down, inhale up, good. Draw the breath out and one more time. Lower and lift, bend your knees, we're going to take a break.

Keep your band with you, take your feet hips distance apart. Let's lift the arms up overhead. We're going to go into pelvic curl or bridging. Take a breath here. We're going to roll our back off the mat as you press your band into your thighs.

So try to get your hands to touch the mat and lift your chest up a little bit higher to get into those hamstrings. And then exhale, imprint your spine as those arms reach all the way overhead. Good, let's do six. Inhale here, exhale, peel up, rolling through your back, press the band into your thighs and your triceps into the mat. Inhale at the top and then exhale, we're going to roll back down.

Lengthening all the way back. You should feel your hamstrings. And again, inhaling, exhale, peel your spine up, pressing your arms down at your side, inhale at the top, get a little bit higher and then rolling down, exhaling as those arms float all the way overhead. And exhale, peel up. Good, make sure that the feet are equally weighted.

Inhale at the top, get a tiny bit higher and then roll it back down. Let's do two more, reaching your arms all the way back. And again, inhaling, roll up, exhaling, pressing down into the mat. Inhale, curl the spine under and roll it all the way down back to neutral. Last time, let's stay up on this last one, rolling up, pressing into your feet.

Good, press into your band, take a breath and little pulsations up. One, and let's just do eight. Two, getting a little higher without going into the low back. So create a little posterior tilt as you press up and good use those arms. And three, and two, one more time up.

Hold here, inhale and reach your arms all the way up. Just keep your arms perpendicular as you find your neutral position. We're going to open our arms out to a T, as you draw the knees over to your right. Inhaling, so you're going to take your knees over and then exhale. You're going to open your band as those knees go over.

So open your arms out, take your knees to the left. Inhale rotation of the spine and then exhale. Bring it back. You can always, what I'm going to do is I'm going to roll my band around my hand and then we're going to go out. Inhaling, creating a little more resistance.

And exhale center. Inhale as you rotate the knees over to the opposite direction, stretching across the chest and take it back and two more. Inhale, take it over, nice spinal twist. Exhale center and inhale open. Stretch across the chest, exhale center.

Last set, and take it over inhaling, reaching out, lower the knees and center. Last one and exhale reach (breathing) and bring it back to the center, good. Nice job. Let's take the arms all the way overhead. We're going to lift the right leg into the band as your arms come forward.

Lift your chest simultaneously, so we're going to lift up, inhale and then just draw the band into that right knee. Yes, and then inhale lower. Let's do five on each side. Exhale go to the left. The resistance of the band makes it a little more challenging for the abdominals.

And exhale, press, good. We're using about a medium weight here, it shouldn't be too challenging. And exhale. You can always double up your band if you wanted more challenge. And exhale reach.

Good, keep your pelvis in neutral, arms overhead. And exhale to the left, last two before we go into the rotation. Exhale, little single leg lifts and inhale. And left exhale one more time. Inhale as you lower.

Last one, exhale up. Inhale back. To the left. And inhale all the way back, pause here, take your right leg up, take your left leg up, knees and feet 90 degrees. And your going to inhale, exhale lift your chest.

Let's pause here, let's do a little alternating before we go into rotation. So right knee in, keep your chest high and exhale. Pull that knee towards your forehead and push against the thigh to create a little more resistance, good. And three more, one- and last two. Two, and let's go for the rotation.

And, can you do it? And let's go rotate to the right, push. And one, good, pushing. Lift your chest nice and high, tipping your toe to the mat, good. Rotate the trunk, stay high in the center.

And one more and center the knees. And release, lower your body, stretch your arms and legs all the way out, give yourself a little break. Give yourself a little arch in the back, kind of wiggle around for a moment. (breathes in) Ah, very good. Let's take our feet back into the band.

We're going to do a roll over. By adding the band, this will assist in a deeper hamstring stretch and a spine stretch. So let's take the elbows down to your side, legs are perpendicular. So we're going to go ahead and take our legs 45. Inhale to 90, pause, scoop and lift.

Take your legs over, push into that band. Now abduct your legs, open your legs about shoulder width. Lower your feet down and keep that openness in the legs as you imprint your spine slowly back to your start position. Lower the legs 45 to 60 and then take your legs together. Good, again, let's do four.

Inhale 90, exhale, push into your band. Pull up your diaphragm, separate your legs. Lower your feet down close to the mat and then try to keep your thighs close to your chest as you use your hands and push into the band for more resistance and then circle the legs back together. Good, nicely done, two more. Take a breath here, exhale up and over.

Pause here, open the legs, lower the feet and roll down, pressing into the band, good. And feet come back together. Last time, we're going to inhale 90, exhale up and over. Pause here, separate your legs, lower your feet and roll it down. Keep the legs apart, the sacrum goes down and then the legs go back to the center, good.

Bend your knees, take a breath here. And let's just go ahead and stretch the legs down onto the mat, let's go into the roll up. So let's do one roll up here. Take a breath and peel your spine up. And let's come to sitting, nice job.

So get the sacrum imprinted, really scoop here and let's pull the band back. Good, one. So it's a little challenge on mostly the abdominals, since we've been doing a lot of that.
