Yoga for Athletes: Grapplers

If you’re into wrestling, jiu jitsu, sambo, or any other “grappling art” (as Jim puts it), this hip and shoulder mobility class is for you. You’ll begin with a joint-focused warm-up and then move on to a plank to child’s pose to lunge flow. After that comes hip-opening movements in sphinx pose, swimmers (a shoulder mobility practice), seated hip-strengthening twists, dynamic bridge variations, and more. Then, once the active work is over, you’ll rest in savasana.
