Apres-ski practice yoga

After practice and over the next couple of days I recommend doing a few yoga postures, as well as foam rolling.
***If you are unfamiliar with yoga or yoga postures, go to a yoga class. You can also check the database at Yoga Journal for instruction on how to do a particular pose.***
Since we are skiing for the first time this season on snow, you might find your hip flexors, adductors and quads are a little tight. Try doing some low lunges (knee on the mat), Warrior I, Warrior II, and Bound Angle.
Another good resource are yoga videos online. I recommend checking out these free videos by Sage Rountree (I studied with her – she specializes in Yoga for Athletes).
Happy Skiing!
