Route Setter Yoga Clinic

to Sep 11

Route Setter Yoga Clinic

A recurring clinic or even workshop, if you will, designed for the specific needs of the amazing creatives behind all of problems we climb & train on in the climbing gym! The focus of this 2 hour clinic will be to provide specific attention to the route setters' bodies in an effort to bring them into balance and relief. 

The focus will be rooted deeply in alignment (based on the Universal Principles of Alignment), increasing mobility & flexibility, partner body work & stretching, & working the key target areas taxed more than others due to the demands of the job- which exacerbate the already taxing movements & body positions of climbing.

SHOULDER REHAB NORCAL TOUR

SHOULDER REHAB NORCAL TOUR

SHOULDER OPENING + ALIGNMENT HEADS NORTH! 

From LA to the Bay, rehabilitation for all the climbers (and non-climbers) at each and every Touchstone gym North of Southern California. 

I'll be road-tripping to 7 of the 8 gyms from Fresno to Oakland over the course of one week to teach and play!  The exact dates and times for each gym location workshop TBA very soon so you can plan accordingly.  I'm so excited to finally bring this super fun, super educational, and seriously therapeutic workshop to more of the Touchstone family after 2 years of seeing it bloom at the Southern California gyms! 


Balance out your body in this 2-hour workshop focused on shoulder alignment.  Bouldering develops super strength in the shoulders, back, and upper arms, but usually at the expense of flexibility, alignment and freedom of movement.  Reconnect to your body's proper alignment through learning different yoga techniques and poses that can be used as sweet healing therapy for shoulder pain and support for your cross training.  We'll combat the "boulder hunch", keep ourselves out of injury's way, and wake up some hidden mobility so we can climbing.

2 Week Hip Opening Progression Series

Join me for 2 Saturdays in a row of hip opening!  Because the hips are such a deep, complex area of the body we will be breaking the full workshop up into two different days so we can also dive deeper into the poses and work into a physical progression!

 

Saturday Week 1:

10am-12pm

  •  briefly refreshing our understanding of the physical region
  • learning principles offered through the yoga practices that can allow us to create balance and alignment in the hips
  • working into basic to intermediate hip opening poses individually and with partners or groups

 Saturday Week 2:

10am-12pm

*attendance at first workshop is highly recommended as this is a progressive advancement*

  • using the knowledge gained in week 1's workshop, we will revisit the basic to intermediate hip openers as a warm up and physical refresher
  • begin working more deeply into the hips via deeper and more advanced hip opening yoga postures (modifications will always be available for all ranges of flexibility)
  • props for both supporting and deepening hip opening postures
  • learning more partner poses and hands-on adjustments to guide the body into the poses with more stability and freedom

Join me for 2 hours in the yoga space at Cliffs we work on understanding, restoring, and stretching one of the most commonly tight parts of the body.  As this will be a sort-of follow up to the first hip opening workshop in June, you can expect to brush up on the things we went over then, while delving in a little bit more and working into new poses and adjustments to work the hip space further.  

*the first hip workshop is not a prerequisite to this workshop

*no yoga experience necessary to participate

*climbers & non-climbers welcome + encouraged
