YogaRX Tuesdays

week #4- Quads/Hammies +vinyasa


If you think yoga is hard, just think of how a t-rex must feel…

If you’ve come to class before, you know that we have been working on a variety of skills.  The asanas we’ve learned have been testing our balance, allowing us to access them with straps and blocks, and mobilizing the shoulders and upper arms (traps, triceps, and biceps), hips (psoas, inner hip flexors; and glutes), and now we are working on hammies and quad stretches.  Keep in mind that even though we are working on hamstrings and quadriceps, we will still be building on what we’ve been working on in previous classes.  The idea is that you can learn new ways to mobilize in class and then continue to practice them at home so we can go even further in the work we are doing now.  If you haven’t had a chance to try out yogaRX, please come to a class 🙂  I give a lot of options for different variations to be successful at any level.
