Yoga for Athletes: Reaching and Twisting Through the Upper Body

This beginner-friendly class is optimal for basketball players and other overhead athletes, swimmers, and athletes who require strength to push themselves up from the floor. It includes a mobilizing side-lying sequence, locust variations, and shoulder-strengthening drills from tabletop.

Along the way, Alicia helps you notice where your range of motion might be limited, how much movement is desirable to lessen your risk of injury, and how to move with more ease in those areas. 

Have a towel or thin blanket on hand for this class.

Props: blocks, blanket
