Shoulder & Hamstring Openers at the Wall

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

No need to roll out your yoga mat when all you need is a wall and a strap. This is a short online yoga sequence designed to open the shoulders and hamstrings in preparation for a yoga practice or any type of athletic sport. Using the wall and floor as resistance, we will work with a slow, deep stretch isolating the muscles of the shoulder girdle and ending with long forward bends to release the hamstrings and entire back body. Have a strap and wall available. (20 mins.)

Level: 1 Style: Vinyasa Flow Yoga Focus: Athletes Yoga, Beginner Yoga, Chest & Shoulder Opening Yoga, Yoga for Men Yoga

Liked it. Only part I was a little confused about was when we were on our back, one leg up in the strap and then where we were supposed to put our one hand on the thigh bone and then push that hand towards the wall (?) when the leg was bent. It was hard to tell which guy to correctly follow. Liked using the wall.
