Hamstrings

Whether you run, bike, swim, lift weights, play sports, or spend a lot of time sitting down, it’s likely you’ll encounter stiff hamstrings at some point. While these rear thigh muscles are powerhouses for sports that require leg strength, they get tight by both overuse and underuse. These classes increase your hamstring flexibility, creating a greater range of motion to enhance all of your activities! Enjoy your online yoga classes!
