Any repetitive motion has the potential to lead to wear and tear, and no one knows this more than an athlete! Whether you run, bike, hike, skate, ski, snowboard, surf, or play ball, overuse of any group of muscles can be mitigated with some care, time and attention. Our Yoga for Athletes classes are short, focused sequences that are designed to open and strengthen those areas that may be working overtime for you, give them a little TLC, and get you back on the field, court, trail, rock or rink!
Are you low on time, but needing a butt-kicking, heart pounding, muscle-burning workout? Well, look no further my friend, because what you've got here is all the core strengthening from yoga combined with the benignity of high intensity training. What does that mean for you? You will get leaner and stronger while improving your cardio in a fraction of the time you'd normally spend working out. Enjoy! On today's menu:
Squats with block overhead
Push-ups on knees
A yoga practice is a wonderful way to cross-train as a golfer. The breath will help you focus the mind on and off the golf course and the postures will open up tight areas in the feet, ankles, hips and shoulders, and strengthen weaker areas of the core and surrounding joints to help you feel better during and after golfing!
A perfect practice for anyone who plays baseball or softball. Challenge your balance and get deep into your chest, shoulders and arms to decompress the body and restore so you can swing, run and shoot hoops with more ease. It's a yogic touchdown! (Or homerun :))
As runners, we often overwork the quads, hips and hamstrings and don't always engage the pelvic floor or core in such a way that helps us move as efficiently as possible. In just 22 minutes, stretch and strengthen your way to a more balanced body and mind!
Feeling sore from a run? Stretch out tight hamstrings, hip flexors and quads while strengthening your core in this half hour sequence geared to help balance out a runner's body. Then you can lace up and get back to it ;)
