Your Yoga practice shouldn’t just be limited to studios and mats - it's a lifestyle thing!
Every day we sit at desks, behind the steering wheel or looking down at our phones in positions that aren’t so great for our overall health and posture.
This simple 5-minute standing sequence is the perfect complement to your posture and will help train your muscles to open up in between your yoga classes.
