Counterflow Yoga


 Summer Sides

We live in a society where people spend the majority of their day hunched over computers/phones/tablets, sitting in a car, or lounged in front of the tv. This has created a culture of rounded shoulders, forward necks, hunched backs, and tight hips -- all which lead to poor posture and injury risk profiles. This vinyasa yoga inspired flow will counter those postures with chest openers, back strengtheners, and other functional movement patterns to open people's bodies and minds to pain free movement.
