Progress Your Push-Up
Detour Peak • 38m
Use a "Strength Ladder" approach to make push-ups more accessible. We'll address common areas of tightness like the thoracic spine and shoulder before moving into loaded bodyweight movements. The "work" in this class targets small, often neglected muscles. We move through ranges of motion that will have you feeling and experiencing new sensations of stretch and strength. By the time we arrive at our destination, your body will be primed and ready for more.

Bridges and Boats
During this practice we'll explore variations of bridge pose and boat pose - alternating between the two for a simple yet fun challenge. You will want a yoga block or squish ball for class. A dumbbell is optional if you want to experiment with external load.
Explore the idea of grounding and coming back to your own centre before you begin to practice this single leg balance exploration. The class builds up to an exploration of tree pose with different options given before ending as it began with a grounding and centering meditation technique.
Strong From the Ground Up
This practice is inspired by my strength training, using unloaded variations of some of my favourite strength practices to prepare you for some more traditional yoga shapes. You will need a black and potentially a wall for additional balance support.
