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).

    Shoulder focus with some cheeky lower body activation in there! You'll need a strap or something similar.

  • Releasing Tension and Mobilizing Shoulders

    Let's release some of that shoulder tension - bring a block with you!

  • Let's Work Our Core

    This class will guide you through some moves that will challenge your stability and your core. Be sure to have one block handy because we’ll be using it. I invite you to have fun, just like I did when I burst into laughter because I couldn’t talk and keep the core engaged at the same time. If thi...

  • Unpacking 90/90 Mobility

    Let’s unpack 90/90 mobility work and get in touch with some true hip range of motion. Having a block and chair nearby will be helpful.

    Detour flow, with emphasis on upper back and shoulders. Have a blanket or bolster on hand as well as one block.

  • Sidebending Soirée

    A fan-favourite class from our original platform that uses mindful repetition to zero-in thoracic mobility. This class will have you feeling good and breathing even better. A cushion or bolster along with a block would be helpful.

  • Lower Body Strength Practice

    Squat time! This will be a lower body strength practice. Have a block on-hand and a heavier hand weight or kettle bell if you have one (20lbs used here). Get ready for some work!

  • Connect to your Engine Room (Glutes)

    Time to get connected to the “engine room” of the body - our glutes! A source of power, stability and drive...grab a block.

  • Rise and Shine

    Wake up and move in just 30 minutes - this session focuses on your spine.

  • Get Ready to Take a Hike

    This practice preps a few key components for walking. If you ever feel a bit yuck after walking or you get a sore back from walking up a hill, this practice has something to offer you. Do it before you go for a walk and you'll likely feel better during and after your walk.

  • Building Shoulders for Chaturanga

    Boost your confidence in chaturanga and "flow" style classes by improving your shoulder stability and strength. You will need yoga blocks, a resistance band, and/or a dumbbell for this practice. This is not a yoga class.

  • Entrenando el Cuello

    Un delicioso mix de automasaje, ejercicios de movilidad y fuerza para darle al cuello la nutrición que necesita en estos tiempos digitales. Un cuello fuerte y movil nos permite tener control de la cabeza y por lo tanto un sistema vestibular (balance y equilibrio) saludable. Necesitaras dos peloti...

  • Hip Internal Rotation Compilation

    One of our most needed movements is internal rotation at the hip -because it's not so an action we frequently train in many movement styles. Part of the benefit here though is that working on IR of the hip often produces downstream benefits to the other movement capabilities of
    the hip too.

  • Flex, Extend & Twist

    As well as moving your spine in all directions to improve mobility, we'll work through some lower body control work to test and develop your strength and stability. No props required unless you usually like to add blocks to your practice.

  • Overhaul How Your Neck Feels

    We could all use a little more durability of our necks. We often keep them moving in pretty straight lines - so this practice will take you out of that and into movements we don't often do - and it'll put them against gravity for load. Dosing this videos a couple of times a week is just what the...

  • Start Your Day with A Good Morning!

    Awaken your hamstrings with this class designed to bring more awareness and strength to the back of your legs. Working with different variations of a "Good Morning" you will find strength and stability in the legs as we explore a detoured version of a single leg balance pose.

  • Hamstring Strength & Single Leg Balance

    Using various techniques, we’ll work to strengthen our hamstrings as well as testing balance and proprioception. Get ready to feel the burn! Grab a block to increase the challenge.

  • Hamstring Focus

    The hamstrings won't be allowed to escape the work here - where sometimes we might find other areas of our body trying to help out a lot, this time we're going to take our sweet time and use our dedicated attention to really hone in on these hammies. Also, afterwards, let's talk about that standi...

  • Core Subsystems Movement Bite

    You'll need a ball (tennis ball sized) for this. Within this little package there are a few progressions you can test out. This movement bite takes you through some activities that really highlight the TVA, external and internal obliques, as well as other elements of our core subsystems. This is ...

  • Juice for the Feet & Ankles

    Our feet and ankles do so much for us and they're so commonly trapped in foot-coffins (ie shoes). Break the chains and work on the mobility and function of your foundation - the ankles and feet. Keep an eye out for some fun at the end. A lot of this work really helps to keep the plantar connectiv...

  • Vinyasa Alternatives for Flow

    How many vinyasas is too many? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Today we’ll explore alternatives to and variations of this somewhat repetitive “flow” that is often cued in public classes.

  • TFL Targeted Movement Bite

    Taking some time to zoom-in on the TFL, you'll be challenged and you may get a few wonderful cramps, but you'll also likely feel some more freedom after this practice. The TFL is an oft under-appreciated muscle - especially for the walkers and runners amongst us. Also, if you've ever had weird la...

  • Lower Body Mobility Stability and Strength

    As always, moving with love...lower body mobility, stability and strength - accumulating with balance! No props required.

  • Lower Body Trail Guide Practice

    This practice explores the relationship between our ankles, knees and hips when it comes to lower body strength and mobility.
