FlowLIFT sets itself apart from other sculpt classes by using light ankle and hand weights while moving through a series of combinations that target your whole body all at once. The mix of yoga body sculpt sequences will leave you feeling strong, stretched out and with a sense of euphoria unlike any other class. Try these moves at home to get a taste of what FlowLIFT has to offer. Think booty work, core focus, and ripped arms for summer! Every move is a combination move that makes your brain work too and you’ll feel muscles you didn’t even know you had. Get ready to sweat! Grab your 2.5lb ankle weights, 3lb hand weights, mat, knee pad and towel. Five type of moves define FlowLIFT classes, and the way they’re put together are what keep you coming back for more again and again. Try one of each type of move below for ten to fifteen reps on each side. Do every move on the right side first, do a vinyasa (plank, updog, downdog) and then do every move again on the left side.
Side Plank Tap Out
Start out in side plank with the right arm up. Put your right elbow down and tap the right foot out as wide as you can so you end up in a plank on one hand and the other elbow. Push off the elbow and come back to side plank. The key is to keep your core and leg strong so you’re not just dumping into the supporting arm. Do ten rep of this move on each side.
This double combo move requires that you pay attention to details. It’s two moves connected by a transition that we call “pinwheel.” Start on hands-and-kness and kick the right leg out to the side while hovering the right hand in the air. Drop into the pinwheel shape; supported by your left hand and sitting on your left hip with the shins staggered on the floor. Pivot onto both hips with both feet on the ground and the knees pointing up to the sky. Your yoga body sculpt move finishes in what we call one-handed crab. Come back to pinwheel and the side kick to continue with your second rep. Aim for fifteen of these on each side.
Cactus Twist Lunge
Come into a high lunge with the back heel off the ground. Using your hand weights do do a shoulder press with the arms straight and the weights above your head. As you tap the back knee on the ground twist your torso and bring the arms into a “cactus” shape, bending the elbows to ninety degrees. Return to starting position and do nine more reps. Don’t forget to do the other side!
Warrior 3 Tucks
The flying moves in FlowLIFT classes act as transitions between the standing and squat series. Start in warrior 3 with the hand weights and the arms extended back. Bend both knees, tucking the flying leg into chest while curing the arms into the chest. Extend the back leg and arms again into warrior 3 and tuck everything into a little ball for the next rep. Work towards ten reps on each side.
Gold Digger Squat
Start at the top of the mat with your feet wide apart. Bend the right knee out to the side, keeping the other leg straight and holding the hand weights. Tap the weights to the inside of the right foot. Straighten both knees and bring the weights to your chest. Reach the arms up straight to the top left corner fo the room and fly off the right foot. Keep moving across the diagonal; from the bottom right corner to the top right corner rooting the foot down and pulsing the leg off the ground as you reach to the sky. We do ten reps of this move on each side.
