Connective Tissue Workout | Standing & Barre | 30 Minutes
When we move our muscles, the movement is given fuel from tiny “power plants” within the cells – the mitochondria. Miranda calls these cells “guardians of our youth”: giving us more energy, helping regulate a healthy weight, improving blood pressure, insulin and blood sugar levels. For example, during tai chi plies—the quads, adductors, and glutes are all using a great deal of fuel to create these big movements!
To get more from your mitochondria in today’s workout: feel the muscles lengthen as you lower in every wide plie or lunge stance. Feel the full foot on the floor and imagine bringing your heels together (engaging the groin muscles) as you press against the floor to come up.
Join Meg for a workout designed to relieve stiffness in all 360 joints, returning them to their natural mobility. Moving a joint slowly and gently to its full extent will rehydrate your fascia and remold the connective tissue, helping you move freely. Movement is the secret to healthy connective tissue!
This workout will be made available for replay shortly after the live broadcast.
