Leader's notes

This offers a flow of yoga poses while emphasizing a focus on alignment basics. We will practice good movement patterns, strength and breath awareness. It is appropriate for those who are able to easily get up and down from the ground and spend time bearing weight on their hands and knees.

Please bring a mat that you don't mind being outside on grass and dirt. If you do not have a mat, message me- I might be able to loan one to you. Wear clothes that allow movement, but not too baggy. Plan on being bare foot during practice.

Why should Mountaineers practice yoga? Yoga is a great complement for many Mountaineers activities. While many outdoor activities tend to shorten and tighten muscles, yoga lengthens muscles and improves flexibility.  Plus, yoga is a great way to develop the core strength and balance essential for a purposeful life.  A consistent yoga practice can bring your body into better alignment, stretch tight muscles, and minimize overuse injuries.  Through yoga, you can develop the mindfulness to be aware of what your body needs to sustain you through any challenge you face on the trail.

In an effort to make yoga available regardless of financial means, this clinic is free for Mountaineers members.  However, if you have the means, please consider making a donation to the Mountaineers.
