Yoga 15: Post-Ride Stretch

15-minute post-ride yoga routine designed to optimize your recovery.

 A question: every time you do a downward dog between asanas, could in replace that with a full vinyasa? (Did several years of ashtanga with an Sharat-accredited teacher until a fractured collarbone forced me to take a break and restart practice a bit easyer. No way is this meant to belittle your videos. I like them because they are accessible and give me the motivation to grt back into yoga.) Cheers!

 Great question. You can do a viñyasa each time you come back to Downward Dog, but I personally shy away from repeating any movements/combination of movements over and over - especially, if you have a weakness in your collarbone. Viñyasa puts an enormous amount of pressure through the shoulder so if you do choose to go this route, be particularly mindful of your movement, engaging the muscles that support your shoulder to protect your bones and joints.

 That dragon one where you reach back and grab the foot, I just cannot do it. I start getting a really bad cramp in the hamstring of the leg I'm grabbing. Any tips on doing it differently?
I realise these were posted years ago, but they're such a fantastic resource. Is Abi still active here?

 You can modify the pose by walking your front foot out to the side more which will give you more space. Other than that, it may be that you are holding onto tension as you try to stretch. Try to relax. Slow down your breathing. And make sure that you’re properly warmed up before going into stretches that are challenging for you. Keep it up!
