YOGA FOR CLIMBERS with Amy Petty, E-RYT (sign-up here)

Enhance your climbing with yoga! Yoga brings balance to climbing and promotes strength, flexibility and focus.

In this workshop we will target specific applications of yoga for climbers:

  • create fluid movement and transitions
  • practice balance through shifting our weight into one legged balance poses
  • develop awareness in feet, legs, wrists and hands
  • strengthen and stabilize our core,
  • work flexibility throughout the whole body
  • utilize strategies to develop antagonist muscles to relieve strain in overused muscles in climbing such as the trapezius
  • learn breath and meditation techniques to focus and calm the mind

 

“Perfection in an asana is achieved when the effort to perform it becomes effortless” (The Yoga Sutras, Patanjali, as translated my B.K.S. Iyengar). Experience how yoga can help to translate this quality to your climbing.
