Yoga for Rock Climbers: Upper Extremities

Patrick Montgomery

Yoga helps balance out rock climbing. This sequence of asanas and arm variations works the opposite actions typically used in rock climbing to balance strengths and prevent injuries. Because climbing involves mostly pulling motions, this yoga practice preferences pushing movements while aligning the joints and increasing mobility in those areas that are typically tense, gripped, and tight. On this journey, you will practice forearm, wrist, hand, elbow, shoulder, and neck drills, variations of Forearm Stand (Pincha Mayurasana), Reverse Table (Purvottanasana), descend into Thread The Needle (Parsva Balasana) and end with meditation in Abhaya Hrdaya Mudra (Fearless Heart). Perfect for anyone looking for an alignment-focused shoulder opening class, particularly climbers who want to add yoga to their training program.
