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.)
