This class will work virtually every stabilizer muscle in your body especially the muscles that have been dormant for years, along with the larger muscle groups. There is a heavy focus on core strength, balance and flexibility. You will have a boost in confidence as you start to notice increased coordination, flexibility, muscle tone and strength as you sculpt your body. Truly one of the very best ways for a woman to change her body while being kind to herself. It never gets easier... you just get better. This class can be easily modified if you need more or less and is appropriate for all fitness levels.
