Welcome to Yoga Tune Up: Yoga Tune Up breaks down the mechanics of movement by using traditional yoga postures to bring awareness to how we move as individuals. It’s a fun class as we play around by changing the pose orientation and give the poses context, we also use props and Yoga Tune Up Balls to incorporate self massage techniques to identify body blind spots which is addictive! Yoga Tune Up gives us a deeper understanding of how our individual bodies move, it really thinks outside of the box and pushes the parameters of a traditional yoga class. Yoga Tune Up is for everyone no matter what level you are at, it will improve your overall strength, flexibility and coordination. Yoga Tune Up teaches us to be students of our own bodies. It helps us to “Tune” into areas that have been neglected or underused and reacquaints us with our bodies movement by movement breath by breath. About
