Yoga Class Description

This online yoga class will show you all the techniques Gwen uses when teaching the NY Redbulls. Soccer players have hours of running and cutting on the field, not to mention running up to 9 miles a game. It is imperative to teach you how to open the entire leg from quadriceps and hamstrings to ankles, calves and toes. Due to the demands on the field, Gwen will show you great ways to keep your back flexible and strong and able to rotate better, enabling you to see over your shoulder to protect the ball. (36 mins.)

Level: 1 Style: Vinyasa Flow Yoga Focus: Athletes Yoga, Beginner Yoga, Yoga for Men Yoga

Even though the class is listed as Level 1, the instructor moves her class along very quickly. I would caution beginners to warm-up a bit beforehand and to modify the speed at which you are doing some of the moving poses.
