Shoulderless Vinyasa

Fresh off the request line from one of members is a shoulder-less vinyasa flow. What does that mean? No chaturanga- the poses in a yoga flow that move you from plank all the way on to your belly. It’s very hard for sore shoulders to do so we build a practice around removing that pose. […]
