Classical Stretch: Aging Backwards (or Age Reversing Workouts)

This is my first Classical Stretch review but Classical Stretch isn't new to me. I read about it a lot on fitness forums but was never really that interested in checking it out. Then I had a major surgery where I was very limited in what I could do. All I could really do was … Continue reading Classical Stretch: Aging Backwards (or Age Reversing Workouts)

Yoga Snack for Shoulder, Side Body, Chest, Back & Neck Stretch

I really liked what I saw. The Yogi is Aprille Walker and she has a lot of … Continue reading Yoga Snack for Shoulder, Side Body, Chest, Back & Neck Stretch

Barlates: Warm & Stretch/Upper

Warm & Stretch: Upper is another nice dynamic flexibility workout from Linda Wooldridge. Just like the other two Warm & Stretch workouts (Standing and Ball), Linda starts with some very active dynamic flexibility movements to get you warmed up. Since this is entirely upper body focused the entire workout is done on a mat. This … Continue reading Barlates: Warm & Stretch/Upper

Barlates: Energy Flow/Band

Energy Flow: Band is another workout in Linda Wooldridge's Energy Flow Series. I love, love, love all of these flowing workouts! I pretty much love everything Linda creates, but these flowing metabolic fusion workouts are my absolute favorites. This one, as the title suggests, uses the band. I felt like the focus was primarily on … Continue reading Barlates: Energy Flow/Band

Barlates: Warm & Stretch with Ball

I love Linda's Warm & Stretch workouts! They are perfect to combine with my Sunday yoga workouts.

I keep expecting the Warm & Stretch workouts to be lower intensity than Classical Stretch but I didn't break … Continue reading Barlates: Warm & Stretch with Ball

Barlates: Fusion Flow/Dynamic

I am loving Linda Wooldridge's new series. She has created several new series; each series contains 4 workouts and they are all perfect for my current fitness level (recovering from major surgery). In fact, I emailed her a while ago and three of these new series (Dynamic Flow, Fusion Flow and Energy Flow) will all … Continue reading Barlates: Fusion Flow/Dynamic

Barlates: Warm & Stretch/Standing

I was very interested when I saw that Linda Wooldridge had created a new series called Warm & Stretch. Not just because I am in recovery mode and looking for easier workouts. Warm & Stretch workouts look and sound like something I would use in conjunction with yoga on my yoga Sundays--regardless of what my … Continue reading Barlates: Warm & Stretch/Standing

Stretch Sculpt

I have heard a lot about Ellen Barrett but I have never done one of her workouts. So when I came across Stretch Sculpt at the library, I decided to give her a try and see why everyone seems to love her. I also went a step further and did this workout barefoot. I previewed … Continue reading Stretch Sculpt
