Loosen Up the Legs
This yoga conditioning class is designed to rejuvenate the legs. By using foam rollers and therapy balls (or tennis balls) you will release tension in the hamstrings, feet, and quads. Tiffany encourages your breath to remain deep and strong, while you work to take the edge off of your sore muscles. Throughout the class, you will be working to create mobile myofascial tissues and ligaments. You will need two tennis balls or therapy balls and a foam roller.
Destress the Shoulders and Neck
Throughout the next sequence in Tiffany’s online yoga conditioning course, you will focus on the tight areas of the neck, shoulders, lats, and pecs. Most people carry a lot of tension in their upper bodies, particularly in the neck and shoulders because they are sitting at a desk in front of a computer all day. Throughout this thirty-minute class, you will use the tennis balls and foam roller to relax the tension knots in the neck and shoulders. As you roll away the discomfort, you will find your stress melting away as well.
Unravel the Hips and Back
The final class of online yoga will be focused on using the foam roller and therapy balls to relax your hips and back that have become painful from sitting in front of the desk for so many hours each week. By focusing on the pressure points of the back, glutes, and erectors, you will help your body move more easily.
