Detour PROPosition classes combine creativity with challenge and accessibility, showcasing how props can be used in unconventional ways to bring new life to your practice. Whether we’re using blocks, blankets, broomsticks or chairs, these classes will have you seeing your relationship with props through a whole new light where intuition and exploration lead the way.
Using a light kettlebell/dumbbell, we'll work on adding some shoulder and core stability to our vinyasa. Expect most of the elements of your typical vinyasa class, with some added spice!
