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.
