Video 166 | Day 2 Strength & Conditioning Yoga Strong Series with Lauren Eirk
Strength and Conditioning Yoga Strong Challenge • 12-Jan-2021
The focus of a Yoga practice should be to facilitate a strong, stable core. In addition, working to maintain joint range of motion should be paramount. This video will help you to move the hip joints to their greatest extent while honoring their structure and function by training various hip positions with solid biomechanics principles.
This video features many common Yoga positions and motions that are designed to target hip musculature by positioning the body in such a way to work against gravity for resistance. The hip joints are complex and weight bearing in nature, so training them in a variety of positions is essential. Adding free weights and elastic bands to the isometric resistance felt in Yoga poses creates even more challenge and also helps you to gain a better understanding of the poses themselves. Increased bone density, muscle strength, joint stability and range of motion is the result.
