The Hamstrings form a group of muscles that are constantly used whether we are simply walking and sitting, riding our bikes or running. We demand a lot from our hamstrings yet we sometimes don’t give them the care that we need to. This often results in injuries. Hamstring pulls are very common. But tight hamstrings can tug on the low back, creating arching and spine compression. In this 8 minute video I go over 3 classic yoga poses that target the hamstrings: Parsvottanasana, Trikonasana, and Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana. I break the poses down – how to get there safely, how to align and what muscles to activate to maximize benefits. If you are a runner or cyclist this is a must do! If you aren’t you should still do these to keep those hamstrings limber!
