Watch: Yoga for Athletes Teachers’ Lounge: Beyond Sun Salutations

The second practice from the 2016 Teaching Yoga to Athletes intensive is online now at YogaVibes.

Not every class needs to contain sun salutations! And for athletes, sun salutations can be frustrating and difficult. In this medium-spicy practice from day 2 of Sage’s 2016 Teaching Yoga to Athletes intensive, we find ways to work around the typical vinyasa template while building balance in the body. We start by turning inward (learn an easy way to introduce the idea of pratyahara, the fifth limb of yoga), then move through Sage’s Leg Swing Flow, Warrior I and Warrior II sequences, and a calming closing sequence on the mat. (59 mins.)
