Shred the Slopes: Asana for Skiers + Snowboards

By Kelsey Frazier

#WinterIsComing, and with it skiing and snowboarding season! Prepare for success and prevent injury this season by cross training with yoga. The slow, controlled movement of yoga asana creates greater awareness and agility in the body and strengthens both the major and supporting muscles involved in charging down the mountain. The following yoga postures will help you optimize your performance without injuring yourself by stretching the hip flexors and knees, strengthening the ankles, and improving balance and coordination. Add these poses to your routine before or after your day on the mountain.
