Post-Game Recovery - Sage Rountree's Yoga for Athletes Series

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

Join the Cornell women's lacrosse team in this mellow, low-to-the-ground practice for post-game recovery. We start with a supported backbend and breath meditation to encourage letting go of the past and focusing on the now, then move through gentle stretches for the spine and hips, including a series of twists to stretch the chest, back, and legs. All along the way, we use the breath to stay anchored in the present, and we work to be comfortable and supported as we rest. Two yoga blocks and a blanket would make good props. (66 mins.)
