Hamstrings And Adductors – Weekly Intermediate Class 21

Join To Start Course

Focus

Tight hamstrings and adductors can make many yoga poses significantly harder to perform. The hamstrings are the group of muscles at the back of the thighs. The adductors are a group of muscles located in the inner thigh region. Stretching these muscles can be uncomfortable or even painful. Because of this many people tend to avoid poses that challenge these areas. Improving flexibility in these muscle groups can help to remove strain from your spine, improve the mobility of your hips, and optimise the functioning of your knee joints.

This class focusses entirely on yoga poses that improve flexibility in the hamstrings and adductors. You are guided through a variety of standing and reclining positions where you are able to comprehensively stretch these muscles with control and support.
