S is based primarily on traditional yoga “asanas,” or poses, with modern elements of Pilates for a total body stretching, flexibility, and strengthening workout. All (S) routines include basic sun salutations, standing poses, balance in motion, a floor core strengthening portion, and a final resting relaxation phase. As participants progress they are instructed to increase the intensity in which they perform the poses so the level of intensity ranges from 7 to 9 on the intensity scale.
