We’re having so much fun with these challenges that we decided to keep it going for the third month in a row! Join us in October as we each build up to one of our favorite difficult poses. Your hosts - Cat, Rebecca, Stef, Karel, and Chante - will trade off leading the charge every six days. We’ll do five days of prep poses before going for the hard one, with plenty of variations to make it easier or more challenging as we go.
