    Survive and Thrive Strength with Donna Thomas

    S and T Strength is a class that focuses on upper and lower body strength and flexibility, as well as core stabilization. Sound familiar? Of course it does. What is different here is that each strength based segment is followed by a corresponding yoga pose that will assist in additional strengthening and lengthening of the muscle and the surrounding connective tissue. Based on my recent hip AND shoulder replacement experiences, I found this specific combination of dynamic strength and flexibility to be crucial in restoring overall robust health.
