Want to improve your climbing? Yoga’s one of the best ways to accomplish that goal. Yoga for Climbers has 22 yoga classes that each focus on a different theme that directly relates to climbing. You can mix and match classes, do a few in a row for a longer workout, or focus on a single class to target a certain area. There is no studio or experience required, and you can do the classes wherever you have an internet connection and space for a yoga mat. Heidi will walk you through each pose and flow, pointing out specific benefits for climbers as well as pro tips on how to get more out of each class.
