Do you suffer from back pain after a run?
Do your hip flexors hurt after you have been cycling?
Athletes notoriously don’t stretch enough. This can lead to an increased risk of injury and painful joints and muscles.
Many of the sports are repetitive like cycling and running and put a strain on the same muscles again and again. This is how certain muscles become tight and over-used and more prone to injury.
During this 1 1/2 hour class we will be stretching and releasing tension. We will especially address the back, hips, and legs.
Yoga for Sports is not supposed to be a conditioning class or meant to be athletic yoga. These are gentle classes to work on imbalances that can cause injury and pain. These are slow classes with a focus on balance. Balancing one side of the body with the other, which can be left with right, front with back and top with the bottom and also balance work with relaxation.
More postures will be on the floor then will be standing. And as all postures are basic ones these classes are suitable for beginners.
