Detour Spotlight

Detour Spotlight

Detour Spotlight classes highlight specific areas of the body in a way that provides targeted work while also teaching you something about how certain joints/muscles work together to create strength and mobility in your favourite postures and movements. Some classes may spotlight the upper body, lower body, or the infamous “core”, while in others we might take a look at something more specific like the hamstrings, TFL (tensor fascia latae) or TVA (transverse abdominis).
