YOGA

If you can breathe, you can do yoga! Yin Yoga focuses on exercising the denser connective tissues of the body, a perfect complement for CrossFitters of all ages. Working the body this way greatly benefits the health of the joints by reducing fixation, maintaining functional mobility, preventing degeneration and increasing hydration. It is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures that are held for longer periods of time-for beginners, it may range from 45 seconds to 2 minutes. The Yin style of yoga will apply moderate stress to the tendons, fascia and ligaments with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility and muscle stabilization. CFU Yoga will consist of a variety of Yin Yoga routines designed to complement the week's CrossFit workouts. Classes will mainly focus on the lower part of the body - the hips, pelvis, inner thighs and lower spine and are beneficial if you are a beginner or have been practicing for years. Mats, blocks and straps are available for your use. Roll out your mat and discover how adding Yoga to your fitness regimen will increase your strength, flexibility and mobility.
