A quick update by Sui Wong

Our inaugural Yoga for Crossfit class is starting this Sunday!  This class is now waiting list only – amazing and thanks all for the turn out!   For those who are curious/ interested/ keen / a bit sceptical 😉  – please sign up early for the coming Sundays as the classes are running as a trial for the month of August.  I hope you get your vote in – fingers crossed this gains momentum and be part of our regular schedule!

This Sunday’s class will start with a warm up sequence that will take us through a range of movements through our joints.  This is followed by dynamic sequences, linking movement with breath, working to increase our functional mobility including opening of the hips and shoulders; and core strengthening.   Caution: we will work both sides of the body – all the better for balancing out our favourite split jerk side!  I’ve included some fun hand-balances in this class, and a good stretch out at the end.  I hope you’ll find yourself having worked out, stretched out and chilled out at the end of the hour!

Here’s a short clip of Warrior 2 pose… :)  Thanks to Julien for help with this video.  Hope you can join us on Sunday 2pm at 10 Malcolm Place – get booking quick!
