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.
