A Level 1+, 40-minute class by Lauren Eckstrom, Yoga for Wellness focuses on basic movements as well as stress relief and a sense of well-roundedness. Use this Power Vinyasa Flow class to cultivate space in the hamstrings. An area of the body where we tend to hold onto past pain and other “old narratives,” it’s important to work the hamstrings for improved practice and overall fitness. Tight hamstrings are a common problem for yogis, making it essential to incorporate hamstring-centric poses into your practice.
Yoga for a Strong and Healthy Back presents the fundamentals of posturing and breathing in this approachable 40-minute workout that includes two 20-minute sessions focusing on spinal rotation and muscular strength. The back is central to supporting all movements; conventional workouts often do not include exercises that strengthen the lower back. Yoga Zone gives excellent instruction here, and participants are taught poses that utilize both the lower and upper back.
