Yoga for Climbing

Yoga improves your balance, focus, flexibility and mindset, all integral aspects of climbing movement. Taught by our talented instructors, our Yoga programs go hand in hand with our climbing programs. You’ll find that Yoga enriches your climbing and your life. Available in introductory and advanced sessions.

Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga yoga is the grand-ancestor of all the flow styles of yoga, and it’s the most strength-based of all of the classical yogas. Every week, we will be practicing the Ashtanga primary series.

Power Slow Flow Yoga

In this class, we seek to find intelligence that connects one moment, one breath, one action to the next. Through this Vinyasa a climber can cultivate a meditative state in a relaxed setting away from the rock, develop a continuity of awareness of breath and become familiar with how it feels to be focused, confident, and fluid from one movement to the next. With this practice, we can learn these subtle insights that can be carried over into our climbing and our lives.

     

    Our Climbing School series takes you through all levels of your climbing experience. To reach the top, join us for some crucial training and instruction.
