Yoga for Endurance Athletes

Each week you'll have two classes, a 35-45-minute yoga strength class and a 10-20-minute recovery class.

The Strength class mixes breathing practice, spinal twists, long holds of poses, and core work to build strength, stability, and mobility.

We always start with several minutes of breathing practice. This means a three-part breath by filling up the belly, diaphragm, then chest, then exhaling the chest first, diaphragm, then belly.

At the end of most yoga classes is savasana, a chance to fully relax. In this class, you are welcome to dive into savasana and fully relax your body.

Or, if you’re ADHD like me and can’t sit still for more than 20 seconds, you can practice your three-part breathing.

The Recovery class has three purposes: open up your hips and shoulders, do some gentle spinal twists, and open your front body.

You can do this class after any workout you do during the week.

We don’t start with a breathing routine like we do with Strength class in order to keep this short. However, inhale and lengthen, exhale and move deeper into the pose are typically consistent cues.
