Runners’ Stretch Series - Yoga for Hips, Hamstrings & Quadriceps Workshop (Studio)

Calling all athletes, runners, cyclists and anyone with chronically tight hips, hamstrings and lower back issues. This all-levels yoga workshop helps you gain more freedom and flexibility in your hips, hamstrings, quads and spine. Your hip flexors and hamstring muscles are one of the most important groups of muscles necessary for long-term mobility, stability and safety of your lower body. Healthy hip flexors and hamstrings are necessary for preventing hip, knee and lumbar issues. Tight hips can cause strain in the lower back. When hips are open, there is more range of movement, better circulation, and more support for the muscles of the back and the spine. Learn how to safely practice yogic stretching and strengthening techniques designed to open hips and release tight hamstrings and quadricep muscles. Attention will be on practicing with a compassionate approach to find the perfect modification of each pose for your needs and ability. For all ages and levels but does require ability to practice lunges, as well as seated, standing, lying on the floor and kneeling poses. Class will end with a rejuvenating relaxation.
