Yoga for Skaters @ Alo Yoga
I collaborated with Alo Yoga to host a signature flow class targeting skateboarders in the community. As a skater and a yogi, myself, I have been blown away by how well these two practices balance each other- both require an immense amount of body awareness, balance, and mental toughness.
How does yoga help with skating?
Skating requires a lot of muscle contraction that yoga counterbalances through stretching. It also teaches you to quiet the mind- a tool that is incredibly useful to skaters. We are often attempting dangerous tricks that provoke unwelcome thoughts that can prevent progress.
Alo's mission is to spread mindful movement to the world. They were excited to reach out to a new demographic of already active individuals in the skate community.
About the Class:
Targets the legs, hips & core- everywhere skaters need some love
Breaks down the basics- open to all skill levels (props included)
Increases proprioception- body awareness that can be taken onto your board
Learn to quiet the mind- a helpful skill for anyone
