Burr, Meghan, Sharon and Helen will use this short class to target your posture muscles and give you a sculpted back. While the primary focus of each exercise varies with the major muscle group, every exercise indirectly works your upper and lower back to give you more definition and tone. Stay focused on your posture and alignment and walk away feeling a few inches taller!

You will need a ball.

Start your warm-up with Burr:

Jump right into your posture exercises during warm-up with a plank, shoulder walks and rhomboid pulls.

Benefits:

  • Works your core muscles.
  • Improves your posture.
  • Targets the stabilizer muscles in your upper back.
  • Burn calories during thigh:

    You will test the power of your thighs with two consecutive sets of thigh-work: start with your feet in a narrow V stance and then finish with your feet in parallel and the ball mid-point between your thighs.

    Benefits:

  • Toned, slimmer thighs.
  • Substantial caloric burn-off.
  • Increased stamina.
  • Leaner body overall.
  • Move into arabesque with Sharon:

    Sharon will masterfully teach you the special details of our arabesque exercise. You will target the corner of your seat while working your upper back.

    Benefits:

  • Narrows your waist and oblique muscles.
  • Strengthens your upper back.
  • Take your ball to the floor with pretzel:
