The video above is only a preview. To watch this and other full length classes, sign up for one of our plans.

Yoga Class Description

Different from speed and agility positions, linemen are known for strength and stability. In this online yoga class, Gwen will show you how to open the hips and find comfort in a deep squat, as well as address the shoulder joint so you can absorb great force when blocking. In addition, Gwen will teach you easy ways to protect the wrist joint, making it stronger and more flexible and giving it greater power to push and also protect itself in the event of a fall on the field. All the same techniques Gwen uses when teaching the New York Giants! (22 mins.)
