Yoga for Athletes, Saturday 12.30-1.30pm

This week’s Focus: Move Your Spine

Forward folds and backbends are fundamental movements in yoga, and many other types of mobility routine or stretching programmes and can be performed in a variety of ways, standing up, seated, lying down. Correct alignment of the spine is essential here, to ensure that the right muscles are recruited to perform the movement or posture.

In Saturday’s class, you’ll learn a few simple yet effective ways to lengthen your hamstrings and spine by practising forward folds. We will also be practising a few of the more gentle backbends with our main focus being to extend from the upper back (thoracic spine), while keeping the lower back neutral.
