Abby instructs the following:
Many new exercises are added on at this level. Inversions are introduced, and greater mobility in the spine, as well as the other joints, is the focus.
A very challenging workout on the Reformer that introduces balancing exercises coupled with strength and flexibility training.
For strong clients who are very familiar with Level 2 clases on the Reformer and Tower and who are able to do Circuit 1 and 1-2 with ease. This fast paced and tough workout will take you through the entire system to an intermediate level.
Following a vigorous and fast paced mat warmup, continue to build upon the sequence of exercises taught in Tower 1. New exercises include inversions, more leg spring exercises, and greater upper body involvement. A full-body workout that will require mind-body connection, precision and fluidity.
