Description

The Flexibility Challenge consists of 15 x 15 minute yoga videos that increase in difficulty as you progress through the course.

Each workout begins with a short warm up, takes you through a sequence of static and dynamic stretching poses and ends with a short cool down.

In the first workout, we deconstruct the primary yoga poses and start to lengthen muscles throughout the body. We then progressively improve flexibility and range of motion in the calves & hamstrings, spine, hips & hip flexors, quads, abs & obliques. We learn all the basic yoga poses including sun salutations.

The course includes:

  • 15 x 15 minute HD videos
  • An introduction to yoga
  • 15 beautifully designed handouts on technique, anatomy and physiology
  • A step-by-step guide to creating your yoga habit
  • An extensive pose library

There are 4 other challenges in this series, to complete your yoga practice - Balance, Mobility, Relaxation and Strength.

Who is the target audience?
  • Men & women
  • Unsuitable if you are suffering from serious injury
