Inspiration to Train Harder

28 09 2010

A video of Dani Andrada and Chris Sharma getting it on at the worlds hardest climbing area. Andrara’s 5.15b is located in the same crag and is said to be repeated only once (on the first try mind you)… and yes, it’s a confirmed 15b. Now we all have a reason to put down the cheese fries and get to Dallas Rocks.

Sign up Starts Today!
Bo practices and teaches Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa Yoga is a style of yoga that links the movement of the pose with the breath. Sun Salutations are always the core of our practice. It is enhanced by multiple working series of poses that will build strength and aide in flexibility. The goal is to create heat, building a sweat to help purify our bodies, while using our minds to find comfort in challenging poses. Calming our minds in this way also helps us quiet our minds’ chatter, reduce stress, and learn how to focus on our internal experiences. Bo breaks down each pose, and offers modifications making it easy to follow and understand. Her classes are suitable for ALL levels!!

For Class information visit ,call (469) 235-7270 Or come in to Dallas rocks and sign up.
