Not long ago a little flyer featuring the words 'Yoga for Lifting' made it's way on to our desks.
We were intrigued. Although the only lifting we do on a regular basis is fork to mouth (hazard of the job), we know all the cross-fitters out there are mad-keen on the whole weight lifting thing, but we didn't know they were so keen on yoga.
Add to that the fact that we love a decent niche trend here at The Urban List, and you have yourselves a round up.
Plus, it makes sense you know? All that crunching, lifting and curling may lead to a hot bod' but it also makes for pretty tightly coiled muscles.
So, in the name of making sure your bulk is lean as well as mean, we've found some of the best yoga in Brisbane for all the cross-fitters and lifters of this fine city.
