Balancing Skating with Yoga
I have recently been doing a lot of aggressive inline skating–rails, ramps, a few falls. Whenever I skate for a while I tend to start getting pretty tight in certain areas and eventually twist something wrong and get injured.
To prevent against this I have been making sure I’m in a limber and healed state before heading out to the skate park. Most recently I’ve been on a 3 week hiatus, which has been long, but the really smart thing to do.
My yoga practice has been a a combination of basic kundalini breathing and kriyas along with prolonged relaxation poses.
