Yoga for climbers
Yoga and climbing work beautifully together… both are focussed, boost self-confidence and can improve physical and emotional wellbeing.
In this yoga class for climbers, we will focus on specific themes and areas that can help develop awareness, strength, flexibility and support healthy movement around particular themes – hip flexors, shoulder mobility, core strength, body balance and alignment, etc – as well as offering simple warm up and warm down routines, and stretches suitable for between climbs, allowing you to develop mat to wall to mat.
Vajrasati yoga encourages students to creatively explore and unlock held tension and patterns in the body through yoga asana, ‘poses’, which may be dynamic or slow and held, depending on the needs of the individual, as well as breath work and meditation techniques that can evolve greater focus and stamina for climbing.
I am Senior Yoga Teacher and Mentor in the Vajrasati School of Yoga, and also an enthusiastic climber at Boulder Brighton.
Classes are accessible and adaptive; students are encouraged to progress safely at their own pace, building up intuition and trust as much as strength, tone and flexibility.
Vajrasati yoga is for everybody – whatever your level of experience or flexibility.
