THE WARM UP: LADY DORK

Welcome to the warm-up, a bi-monthly trillfit feature where we chop it up with our favorite fitness instructors about their teaching styles, favorite rappers, favorite cheat meals and (way) more. 

When we heard that rockstar yogi LadyDork was paying a visit to Boston, we knew we wanted to tap her to lead a TRILL session. Her motivational approach gives us clarity on the mat and encourages us to push ourselves deeper into poses. Pair that flow with another bangin' set by DJ Nick Bishop - and we're ready to celebrate our resolutions all day. If you haven't copped your tickets to Brunch + Burn yet, there's no time like the present! Purchase now.
