Watch: Yoga for Athletes Teachers’ Lounge: Reverse Vinyasa

Day 5 of my 2016 Teaching Yoga to Athletes intensive included a short practice featuring an alternative to the standard plank–chaturanga–up dog–down dog vinyasa. Repetitive movements lead to imbalances, both in sports training and in asana practice. Shaking up our habitual patterns helps us build new movement pathways and avoid injury.

Training can lead to sport-specific imbalances—and so can asana practice! In this short lesson, filmed during day 5 of Sage’s Teaching Yoga to Athletes intensive, we explore a minor change to the typical plank-chaturanga-up dog vinyasa that both challenges and balances the body. (17 mins.)
