Yoga this Saturday!

Weekly yoga practice to complement your training, designed to improve flexibility and boost recovery. Suitable for all levels, complete beginners welcome.

Over the next 2 weeks, we’ll be focussing on lunges, standing postures and ankle mobility. A solid foundation is essential not only for your squats and Oly lifts – tightness or imbalances in the ankles for instance will have an impact on your knees, and therefore on the hips, the lower back…you see where this is going! Your feet are what connects you to the ground, which in return means that whatever goes on at that level, will dictate the alignment of other body parts, and therefore standing movement patterns. Poor mobility leads to compensation, and you’ll learn more about how this may manifest in your lifting, running and rowing. We will be practising a number of exercises to loosen up those tight joints – simple things you can add to your own stretching routine before or after a workout.
