“The Inertia” Yoga for Surfers



This routine is designed to ease aching neck and shoulders, increase flexibility in your hips and hamstrings, stretch your chest and decompress your spine. Practice this routine 3-5 days a week directly after you surf on in the evening before bed.

BEGINNER

Modifications for beginners:

– If you are uncomfortable sitting cross-legged, sit on the edge of a cushion to raise your hips up.
– Bend your knees as much as you need to in Downward Dog so that your spine is flat and your lower back does not round.
– In Forward Fold, bend your knees as much as you need to.
– If you cannot reach your fingers to the mat in Crescent Lunge Sidebend, rest them on a book or low table.
– Stay up on your palms in Lizard until you have the flexibility to come down onto your elbows.
– In Pigeon, if your hips are not level, put a cushion under the hip of your bent leg.
