Yoga for Sports

This is a vinyasa class primarily with some hatha influence. I have sequenced asanas to concentrate opening the hips and hamstrings whilst the body is in it’s optimum alignment. There will be an emphasis on using mula bandha (pelvic floor) and the core to build on inner strength. This can help promote healing and help prevent future injury. Participants in the past have fed back that they have noticed a reduction in run and cycle times.
