Yoga for Athletes: IT Band & Hips

Kylie Larson

This class is focused on the IT band, the ligament that runs down the outside of the thigh from the hip to the shin. IT Band Syndrome is one of the most common overuse injuries in endurance athletes like runners and cyclists. If you have been experiencing pain in that area, this class is a MUST DO!

In order to really dive into the IT band, we must also get into the hips and the hamstrings so you can expect to stretch those areas as well.

We begin this class in a supine position, prepping the hips, hamstrings and IT band for deeper stretches, and each series of poses moves a little deeper into the body. You will also flow a bit in this class to help build heat in the body and suppleness in the joint.

I hope that you also take away a few new stretches that you can incorporate into your post-run or ride stretching routine.

Yin Yang Yoga for Lower Body

Start this practice with long, slow yin holds which open the connective tissues of your lower body from hips to toes. Move on to more strengthening poses which will engage the muscles of your legs without over-taxing them. Then ground down through the lower body and learn how this can create more lightness and ease in the upper. Finally, Elise will again guide you through a soft, yin-like practice to end the class relaxed and calm. Pair with this session with Yin/Yang for the upper body for a longer, full-body experience.

Yoga for Triathletes: Post-Training Practice

Claire Petretti Marti

This short class is specifically designed with the busy triathlete in mind. Triathletes are unique because they compete at peak levels in three physically demanding sports. Over time, this extreme training can cause imbalances in the body, which can result in injury if not addressed.

Yoga can help by going beyond simple stretching to work the muscles and joints through all ranges of motion. By working the body through all planes of motion, yoga creates balance, stability, core strength and flexibility. The focus on breathing also enhances mental focus.

Perfect after a swim, a bike, a run...or any time!

Yoga for Runners: Post-Run Practice

Claire Petretti Marti

This short class is designed specifically for post-run (but we won't tell if you practice it other times, too because you'll probably want to!). Runners often suffer from overuse injuries because of the repetitive nature of the movement in one plane of motion. To help prevent common running injuries, including those involving the illiotibial band (ITB), knees, hamstrings, hip flexors, and shoulders, try this quick class to counteract all those miles.

What's Up With My Hips and Hams?

Dana Damara

An active lifestyle of biking, hiking, walking create tightness in the hips. Couple that with sitting at a desk or in your car and you’ve got a recipe for low back issues. This is an easy class to follow that will open your hips, elongate your hamstrings, and release any tension from your low back.

This class is accessible for all levels of practitioners. If you have a block available it would be helpful but it is not necessary.

Happy Hips

Hayley Hobson

Does it seem as though your hips will never open up or that you can't figure out how to get your body to be in more advanced hip opening poses? If so, this class is for you. Hips and lower backs are usually stiff for one of two reasons: either too much sitting or too much exercise. Either way, yoga can help if we're practicing in correct alignment. This class will take you through a sequence which will help you learn how to undo years of stiffening patterns in your psoas and outer hip muscles. Your back, hips and knees will feel liberated and you'll soon be doing poses you never thought were possible.

Hip Opening Flow 3

Lisa Richards

One of the greatest things about yoga asana practice is its ability to open up areas of our body that carry excess tightness and tension, making us feel stiff, uncomfortable and also more prone to injury.

This 25 minute Hip Opening Flow is one of our most intense hip opening classes. First you will be lead through a few Sun Salutations to warm up the muscles, and then through lots of intense poses directed at stretching and opening your hips, one of the tightest areas of our body.

This is a calming, slower paced class where the poses are held a little longer than in a regular Power Yoga class. This class offers an amazing opportunity to really release and let go of our stress that is associated with tightness stored in the front, side and back of the hip area. This is perfect for before or after running, days when you are on your feet a lot, as a way to start or end your day, or any time you need to let go of the tension in your hips.
