Minimal equipment, maximal nature. These workouts can get you out of the gym.

Whether you’re stuck at home or adventuring in the mountains, it feels great to open up your hips and fire up your core at the end of a long day. Fortunately for all of us, you don’t need much to make this happen. This week, our fitness guru Kirsten of Aiiro has you covered!

Pick up a sweat or release the tension of a long day with these workouts and a short meditation.
