Yoga for Athletes › Mollie McClelland Morris
Athletes move more than the average person. Excellent. We think that’s laudable. You’re probably type A, you’re ambitious, you’re working towards goals in every aspect of your life. We love that kind of person. We’re like you. Except we found that when we just focused on our athletics, be it running, triathalons, cycling, ski-ing or whatever - our muscles started to feel tired, over-used and under-stretched. Brains can get frazzled. So find yoga for your overworked muscles, clear your brain and give yourself some space to perform better, more efficiently and much less prone to injury.
This class focuses on exploring the range of hamstring movements, so we don’t overstretch the hamstrings, but instead hydrate, nourish and expand into our own potential. Expand to work your hamstrings in their full range, and remember, when stretching it’s healthy to move at between 60-80% of your potential. A really great class for all of us who are tight in the legs from everyday life. Mostly wrist-free. You will need a ball and an elastic theraband, if you one.
