It’s essential for athletes to rest between workouts so the body can repair, rebuild and strengthen itself. Create deep openings in your hamstrings, hips and chest while calming your mind with dirga pranayama/three-part breath.

Thanks for this video. :) This was a great release for me after an intense day canyoneering - climbing, jumping, hiking, swimming, rappelling... my whole body needed this!

Wow. This was intense and me realize just how tight I am from running. Although it was tough, I felt a significant release after completing the stretches. Good length, too. Definitely adding this to the regular rotation. Thank you!

My body is always sore from training and I turn to yoga for cross training and recovery. This video is the perfect combo. Katie is understands the body and knows how to release the tight areas. I will be back for more.

A few new-to-me stretches using a wall gave me a really deep stretch in my perpetually tight quads & hamstrings. Definitely a keeper for my video rotation.

I love her approach to deep stretch for athletic recovery. It's done wonders for my athletic life and the injuries that can result from being so active. Keep up the good work Gaiam by choosing such knowledgeable and charismatic teachers!
