Here we go through a step by step approach of activating the right pillar system to train the correct movement pattern for squatting...Click here to read more: Dynamic Functional Mobility Series - Squatting From The Bottom Up (SBUp) "Repair+Recovery Workshop" by Lauren Polivka, DPT

Summer Yoga Series at CrossFit Midtown

We have our 3rd guest Yoga Instructor this Saturday 6/27 at 12 PM as we continue our summer yoga series at CrossFit Midtown. For Annie Harbison yoga is a chance to discover, a time to receive, and a place to heal. It brings her to a state of wholeness and balance when She's had a wreck of a day, and it allows her to express pure joy when everything is aligning just right in a stretch or pose. In Teaching, she'd liked for Yoga to remind us to stop controlling and to start letting go and immerse ourselves in the flow of things.

Join us on Saturday at 12pm for a special yoga class for CrossFitters lead by Annie Harbison!
