My Favorite Post-Workout Yoga Routine

Here at Hello Anna Branding, I’ve officially hopped on the fitness bandwagon again. Thanks to Hammer Smith Sports, I’m back at training to make the Atlanta Silverbacks Women’s soccer team (wish me luck!). Working on my speed and agility in addition to strength training is wonderful.
