This weekly yoga practice focuses on stretching and strengthening areas of the body that athletes need such as the hip flexors, low back and the neck.
We will also focus on strengthening the core to increase low back stability and use Yin postures to get into the plantar fascia, IT band and the psoas muscles.
In addition to the physical elements of the practice, the athletes will learn how they can access the breath in times of stress and mindfulness techniques to assist them in their daily lives.
In this practice, we will use Yin poses, held for 3-5 minutes each, to focus on connective tissue, ligaments, joints and fascia in a gentle Yin fashion. The main difference between this practice and a traditional Yan practice (think Vinyasa, Hatha, Power Yoga) is that we are not trying to use muscle. This practice also allows the practitioner to just 'be' with oneself and all the sensations that arise in the physical, emotional and spiritual body. Learn how to use the breath to release tension in the body. Yin can also be called Meridian Yoga in that we apply pressure to meridian lines of the body, allowing Qi (chi) to flow.
