Meet Coach Summer – she specializes in coaching movement & Flow
“With over 20,000 hours of movement coaching experience, I have seen similar compensatory patterns develop in the modern human. We tend to become chair shaped or cell phone shaped, with tight upper back & shoulders combined with chronically tight hips. The average person knows that they would benefit from yoga, but for various reasons it gets put on the back burner. People may find yoga boring, confusing with Sanskrit terms, and overall inaccessible due to mobility issues and old injuries. Steel Mace Vinyasa™ is a comprehensive program addressing strength, stability and grace – fit for absolutely any-BODY.”
-Summer Huntington // Founder of Steel Mace Vinyasa™
As humans we tend to prioritize our work and our families first, and then whatever is left over may or may not go to self care. With the epidemic of stress related dis-ease, we need more conscious coaching that challenges our spatial awareness, our mental fortitude and helps us tap into what is known as Flow State.
It is well documented in the research that Flow state is the most healing place for the human mind to make long term sustainable behavioral change. But, most people don’t know how to elicit that effect on their own in their movement practice. Until Steel Mace Vinyasa™ …
Steel Mace Vinyasa™ – Lvl 1 Foundations is a fool proof online guide to training in all planes of movement, learning to stabilize first then graduate up to dynamic movement, torque development and handling the steel mace with maximum proprioceptive awareness.
We emphasize skill development and progressing from simple movement to more complex movement. Steel Mace Vinyasa™ is both fun and challenging, and will help you condition your movement patterns first and follow it up with a yoga sequence integrating the steel mace into your actual Flow. The final component is a similar unweighted flow that feels effortless, graceful and powerful.

Each of the 6 workouts Workout is comprised of 4-5 exercises demonstrated with breakdowns, alignment and expert coaching. Once you practice and learn the exercises, there is a bonus video in each workout with the full circuit completed with 2 minutes of work to 30 seconds of rest. We recommend completing the practice round, then 1-2 rounds of the conditioning before moving the the loaded & unloaded flow.
After completing your practice round of exercises, then the 1-2 timed rounds… You are ready to move into the weighted Flow with the Mace, followed immediately by an unloaded Flow. You will unlock the power of maximum power recruitment in that weighted flow, making your final yoga flow feel effortless – almost like you are flying.
Remember, the Steel Mace Vinyasa Conditioning exercises build on complexity, and layer components of mills, drop swings and very dynamic movement, and some may take time and practice to master. Modify when needed, choke up on the mace when needed and you may even want to start with a 5 lb mace at first.
What is the Steel Mace & How does it work?
The Steel Mace is a tool modeled after the ancient gada, used throughout history to strengthen warriors for battle. As modern day warriors, combatting stress, the disease of sitting and occupational adaptations – we need a tool that helps us access our true power as humans. Our ancestors evolved to use tools like clubs and mace to chop wood for fire, provide protection, make shelter and so much more. When yielding a mace while training movement patterns, not just yoga… something shifts in our psyche. We conjure up our own inner warrior archetype, and feel complete control over our movement, we experience total presence and a deeper connection with our body & breath. Steel Mace Vinyasa™ is for anyone wanting to access mobility, strength & Flow state in their workouts. You will be challenged, you will grow and you will feel your body & mind shifting with every workout & flow.
How long has loaded yoga been around?
I founded a comprehensive system integrating strength & conditioning with Yoga in 2011, and spent the last 6 years teaching level 1 & 2 seminars globally. As a coach of coaches, my goal is to give my instructors a blue print to integrate load into the movement practice both safely and efficiently. Steel Mace Vinyasa is a culmination of all of my education, experience and advanced Yoga Teacher training into an easy to follow progression that will take anyone’s athleticism to the next level. You will broaden your tool box, grow your practice and learn to move better. Plain and simple.
How does Steel Mace Vinyasa™ work?
Follow the program step by step, mastering the videos and workouts in order and you will be guided to conditioning first then flow.
Steel Mace Vinyasa exercises are demonstrated and practiced first in individual video tutorials, then conditioned with a tabata style timer. Using the 2 minutes of work 30 seconds of rest timing protocol allows our nervous system to create a solid road map of where to apply torque in shoulder girdle with the mace, activation in the deep inner core, and stability in our deep hip rotators. Steel Mace Vinyasa™ literally trains the trifecta of your shoulders, core and glutes in every single exercise & weighted flow. This drastically increases performance for any-BODY, especially people with minimal yoga experience.
What if I don’t do yoga? Is this program still good for me?
Yoga simply means union. It is not about the pose, it is about unifying body, mind and breath. Training with a steel mace will accelerate your understanding of the biomechanics involved in yoga based movement patterns, enhance your breath control and help you speed up the conditioning & mobility adaptation in your nervous system.
Steel Mace Vinyasa™ is about creating strength, stability & grace in all planes so that you can get the most out of your training. Take the Warrior poses for example, these poses help open the hips so that we can access full range of motion, and thus develop more power, because we have more range available. With more power comes more control of our movement patterns. When you train the Steel Mace Vinyasa™ workouts and Flows, you’ll connect with your inner warrior and truly embody Flow.
This looks way too advanced, I can’t possibly do this?
To grow, evolve and elevate in our understanding of body & mind connection, it is important to understand where we leak power. The Steel Mace Vinyasa™ practice will help you identify your own power leakages, dead zones, mobility impairments and fear reactivity in a very safe way. Once you create awareness about where you are ‘weaker’ or lacking activation, only then can you start to restore mobility & Flow.
In the last 7 years of teaching my seminars globally, I’ve heard it all.
You may be thinking…
- I’m not flexible enough for this
- It looks way too hard
- I could never do that
- I have too many injuries to try it
- I am too overweight
- I don’t like not being good at things
- Yoga is not for me
These are all self limiting beliefs that are preventing us from tapping into our full potential in our movement. When we learn to master both our minds AND our movement, only then can we start to truly embody Flow. It will take time, dedication and practice… but remember there is always progress in our practice if we are patient.
What will I experience with training Steel Mace Vinyasa?
