10-minute yoga for climbers (ALSO great if you’ve been hunched over a desk all day)

We know that’s pretty specific right? Yoga expert Jessica Stewart has yoga sequence to improve flexibility and increase upper body strength before climbing. But it’s also an amazing workout for anyone that’s been hunched over a desk all day

Welcome back to our ‘Yoga for..’ series. This week we have partnered with expert Jessica Stewart, yoga teacher at 3tribes. In this 10-minute yoga for climbers sequence, the focus is on opening your fingers while building shoulder, chest and arm strength and increasing your hip and leg flexibility ready for a great climb. Even if you’ve not climbed anything in your life, you’ll love the way it opens up your body and gets your blood flowing after a tough day hunched over a hot keyboard.
