Continuing to progress your summer training with coach Fran.
Today, stay consciously connected to the breath. When we stay connected to the breath you begin to notice the mind will become quieter and a calm awareness arises.
It is also worth remembering the essence that keeps us alive in the physical body is the breath!
This class can also be used as a post class cool down. Come back to the R.A.I.N method often if you struggle to manage your inner chatter.. This mindfulness practice can help guide us towards self compassion. Please use the R.A.I.N meditation for guidance from me. Chloey x
Today we focus on strength endurance and power for those hips. Think about how much we bring the knee towards the chest when we dance and extend the leg for front clicks and shoots etc.. This requires a lot of strength! Let’s do it! x
CONGRATS. You did it! Thank you for joining me. I do hope you enjoyed it. Grab your journals and reflect on this 14 days. Please remember the initial video where I mentioned that this was not a quick fix to splits.. If you managed to get there.. Fantastic! For some it may take another 14 days, and thats ok! Keep going, stay consistent and be kind to yourself along the way! x
In this 30-minute flow, we’ll work between active and passive movements, exploring the depth and range of motion in each. Active shapes might not feel as deep as when you’re passive, but there is a lot to be learnt here and having awareness of both is important for safely delving deeper into our splits.
*Passive stretching – aka relaxed stretching. Where you assume a position and hold it with another part of your body.
*Active – Holding a stretch with no assistance. Using the strength of your muscles.
