Cool down and stretch out the muscles you used to climb the mountain. Recommended props: 2 blocks
I regularly do this sequence after a run. It's great for getting into the hips. Highly recommend for those runners who skip stretching because they don't have time. It's short but feels thorough while you are doing it.
I’ve been doing a LOT of power yoga lately to work on strength and toning, and my knee injury was starting to remind me why I can’t be all strength all the time. This practice is just the thing to calm and stretch that overactive IT band and quad that’s pulling on my patella. I’m sure this will become a regular part of my practice to take care of this tender knees!
So nice to cool down with this class. I like how it is just a little bit active and also a very deep stretch. Thanks!
I am adding this to my running/conditioning days. Did this one after a sprint/running/conditioning workout and my back felt great after doing this sequence and waking up and working out through backache.
Great for after a run too!
Perfect pick me up flow after sitting all day in front of a computer
I have been looking for short refreshing flows after a long day of sitting/working on a computer and I think this is perfect. Stretches the shoulders, side body, hamstrings, lower back...hits all the problem spots.
Pretty good after rock climbing outdoors, too, though I have to supplement the arm/shoulder stretches a bit.
Feels great on my calves, hips and back.
Work up to bird of paradise, which is a really fun pose that's also a huge hamstring and IT band opener.
Open your hips and hamstrings as you work toward visvamitrasana. Any level student will get something out of working toward this advanced pose!

When your hamstrings are tight, everything else starts to tighten as well.Feel better and help reverse the damage that’s been done with this short class. Recommended props: 1 block, 1 strap
