We’re here to help you find the right classes to explore.
Benefits of yoga for climbers:
Teaches Mindfulness - Yoga calms the mind by bringing attention to the breath. The deliberate breathing taught in yoga can help calm climbers and strengthen their headspace while climbing.
Brings Body Awareness - Being spatially aware of how the body is positioned can help climbers better understand how to use their bodies while on the wall.
Strengthens Core - Yoga teaches stability through the centerline of your body, building strength through the entire torso which helps while keeping tension through climbing movements.
Increases Flexibility - Yoga provides deep stretches throughout the entire body. This increases flexibility with enough practice and consistency which may help when reaching for difficult holds, stemming, and higher steps.
Prevents Injury - A strong core and good flexibility aids in preventing injuries. Practicing yoga develops muscular balance by working the “push” muscles, not often used in climbing.
