Yoga for Winter Endurance Sports

Yoga Class Description

As you head out into the snowy wonderland to enjoy winter endurance sports like skiing and snowshoeing, be sure to take yoga with you. Here are some poses to lengthen and strengthen your body for better enjoyment of winter sports. This online yoga sequence, taught by endurance coach and yoga teacher, Sage Rountree, releases your upper body and builds stability in your lower body - especially the glutes, which power your pushoff; the hip flexors, which help you clear your feet from the snow in preparation for the next step; and the lower leg, which has to stay stable and engaged over uneven surfaces and inside winter boots.
Level: 1
