OD-ing on Cardio? Recover With These Yoga Stretches

Junkies, y'all always go HARD in Cardio class! There ain't any marking when we know you love going 0 to 100 as soon as the DJ drops the beat.

All those dance moves, sprints and jump moves can be rough on your body, especially if you're not stretching properly before and after class. 305 Flow Creative Director Chris SantaMaria gives us the skinny on some of our favorite Cardio dance moves and the corresponding 305 Flow yoga stretches to help you recover.

Fun fact - Chris teaches both Cardio and Flow, so book that CSM double, henny!
