FUNCTIONAL YOGA + MOVEMENT STUDIO
HEART OF THE
On-demand movement classes that support your everyday life.
If you're here, you might have tried a yoga class where you find yourself attempting bendy, gymnastic-style postures, thinking to yourself, "How on earth...?"
Or...Maybe you've been a long-time yoga practitioner and love the practice but find that your joints feel achy, or you still have back pain despite being consistent.
That's because, unpopular opinion time, despite its reputation, most mainstream yoga is not all that "functional" for everyday movement and life. There, I said it! *gasp*
Enter Heart of The Lioness Studio, an online functional yoga + movement studio which offers a wide variety of on-demand classes that blend yoga, mobility work, corrective exercise, and resistance training.
This is real-life yoga for real-life people.
It's a different way to yoga ;) One that focuses on functional movements to help improve the way you move on and, more importantly, off the mat!
Because chances are, you don't really care if you can put your leg behind your head, but you DO care about being able to live your life!
The classes in this studio are designed to help you get stronger and more mobile through movements you need to perform daily...so you can feel capable and empowered, on and off the mat!
