My favorite thing about working at Athlos is…

…participating in our daily movement breaks. It’s rare to find companies that break up their work day with yoga, dancing, mindfulness activities, or freestyle basketball. Movement breaks allow us to model what we teach in our schools and contribute to our unique Athlos culture.
