MTB Cool-down

This gentle MTB cool-down is designed to completely unwind you after your ride. To loosen you up and stretch out tight muscles.

Try to stay relaxed throughout the sequence, breathing in and out through your nose. See if you can make your session completely struggle-free—letting go of tension as you move through each pose.
