It's common knowledge that yoga stretches your hamstrings. But what about strengthening them. All muscles need both tone and pliability to work at their fullest potential. Regrettably, most yoga classes tend to overemphasize stretching the hamstrings which can lead to injuries.
We’ll start in bridges and work through familiar poses like half splits with a different approach. If you are someone with open hamstrings then this class is GREAT for you. This is also perfect for those of you who are weak in the back of the leg. This class will give you more endurance for hiking, running, cycling, walking. Peak pose is splits but don't overdue it or force it.
