Ballet Inspired Workout

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday!

Below is today’s inspirational picture. I hope it leaves you feeling inspired and ready to take action. 🙂

Today’s workout is ballet inspired and SO much fun! From learning the position names to actually learning the positions and opening up the hips, I finished the workout with improved posture, a sense of accomplishment and wanting to learn more.

For those of you who are skeptical, I would like to mention that many athletes (male and female) credit ballet for their increased athletic performance. Ballet is great for increasing flexibility, improving balance and leading to a reduced risk of injury. Ballet is also good for the brain. Learning different ballet positions and routines is beneficial for the brain in dealing with patterns and spatial awareness.

If you give the workout a try, I’d love to hear what you think!
