The Lucas Rockwood Show

We often think of “exercise” as the yoga class after work, the morning job, or a weightlifting session. But there are many more ways to exercise, and one way often overlooked is Corrective Exercise, or the fitness practices designed specifically to correct weakness, tightness and imbalance in the body.

On this week’s Yoga Talk Show, you’ll learn about simple self-care techniques that can make a huge difference in your health.
