In this yoga class for athletes and everyone, recorded at the end of Day 4 of Sage's Teaching Yoga to Athletes intensive, we play with controlling momentum from the core. You'll warm up your core and your sense of humor as you roll in and out of a squat, and lift up and down to tall mountain pose. Then take what you learned into hand standing, finding a new sense of balance and alignment. Finish with a series of forward folds and hip stretches done at the wall. Along the way, Sage explains the anatomy of the hips and hamstrings and teaches you to find deep release while protecting your back. Have a block, bolster, space at the wall, and blanket available. (48 mins.)
