Sensual Stretch w/ Maya Louisa
Sensual Stretch is a total-body stretch class for adults. Stretching gives your muscles the ability to lengthen, to expand and restore after exercise. Stretching also reduces muscle tension, enhances muscular coordination, and increases blood circulation and energy levels. And of course, it feels amazing.
