Detour Peak

Detour Peak

Detour Peak classes guide you toward an intentional destination, using a peak posture to inform and inspire every piece of the puzzle in this practice. If we’re working toward a backbend, expect to spend time on spinal mobility and hip extension (say hello to your glutes and hamstrings!). Or maybe the peak pose is an arm balance, in which case we’ll introduce plenty of wrist prep, core activation and proprioceptive awareness. In these classes, every movement and posture plays a role in taking us toward our ultimate goal.
