What I offer
Yoga for climbers
Drawing on over 25 years climbing experience and 7 years coaching experience, in these classes we will focus on building strength, increasing flexibility, improving technique and injury prevention. We will also be looking how yoga can be used to improve your mental approach to climbing.
Thursdays strength and conditioning class is a dynamic flow, incorporating exercises into the sequence allows for additional strength and conditioning benefits as well as increasing flexibility. We will usually have fun exploring balance poses. Expect a workout in this class.
Sundays flexibility and recovery class is a slower paced and suitable for all, including beginners. The first half of the class we move through a standing sequence to increase flexibility and mobility. The second part we use seated and reclined poses for longer periods to further increase flexibility and allow that important recovery time before your next climb.
