Rock, Run, Yoga! is a 90 minute class aimed specifically at climbers and runners; this class will benefit ANYONE, but it is advised that you have some other kind of physical practice in your life… (are you at least a mildly active creature?) as; whilst enthusiastic beginners to yoga are welcome to come move with us; This class can be challenging on upper body strength and leg strength (the two main things my climbing & running buddies need, Holla!). As well as all round core strength.
That being said, this is a very inclusive supportive environment where you can take any variation you need; be that the easy option or the more advanced progression.
The class entails a yoga warm up, targeting hamstrings with the aid of a strap. A full body mobilisation and then sun salutations to fully warm up your spine and limbs. We will stretch, tone, flow in Vinyasa, hold poses, challenge ourselves, sweat and breathe and find ourselves on the mat – I can’t wait for yoga playtime with you.
The Pranayama work we’ll do in our flow section will assist you in your chosen sports to perform better off the mat; be that on the climbing wall or running your favourite trail.
The type of people who would enjoy this class are those who are sporty, energetic, love running or climbing or just love a challenge. If you like a gentle push and the chance to work hard and stretch deep – this one is for you.
The benefits of this class are strength, improved mobility, agility, improved balance work both static and moving, a stabilised core structure and a happy mind.
