And, the easiest way to maintain those goals is through CONSISTENCY! I’ve got exciting news for 2023:
First, Lupa Fitness Den strives to help clients keep consistent in their yoga/fitness goals. With the challenges of inflation and the cost of everything going up, we’ve made changes to our pricing options. We want to make it easier for clients to enjoy their membership, as well as be comparable with other online boutique studios.
Second, I’m thrilled to continue my partnership with Seminole County Public Schools in offering Barre classes both online and in person for the rest of the 2022-2023 school year! Whether you prefer taking classes with me at the ESC, online, or both, check out the remaining dates for the rest of the year. Note: these classes are for SCPS employees ONLY.
Banish those Bat Wings!
It’s my favorite time of year, and I get requests every class to tackle this specific “fright” – how to tone upper arms.
One exercise I love to target that specific section is Barre Pushups!
No equipment needed, just a sturdy surface that can hold your body weight, such as a ballet barre, chair, or sturdy piece of furniture like a countertop or dresser. Stand facing the sturdy surface with your hands flat. Lean forward into an incline, or plank, position, with elbows close to your sides. Like a traditional pushup, you’ll lower your body closer to the sturdy surface, then raise it back to the starting position, elbows staying close to your body. Take care that your spine stays straight, hips in alignment. Watch for arching your back or lifting your butt up in the air.
Complete a full set (or more!) of these incline pushups, working your triceps, as well as keeping your core zipped and engaged. Make this exercise a little more challenging by moving your hands closer together, making a diamond shape by touching your thumbs and fingers together on both hands. For best results, work out those arms at least twice a week!
