Tight calves? This stretch class is for you! We focus on the calves along with the rest of your lower chain, from your ankles to your hips. This is a great warm-up for a flow, as well as a nice stretch for the evening.
Our adductors and abductors are extremely important yet often overlooked muscles. In this short flow we move through a series of exercises designed to activate and strengthen them. This is a great warm-up for a longer balance-oriented class or simply a great way to loosen up quickly.
Quality movement and lower repetition is the goal here as we explore movement in a variety of planes, including strong core and Pilates workouts. Forgetting my new iPhone dongle, we'll let the music be our breath (or put on your own!).
