Instructions & Tips for Coaches
1. Downward Dog Pose
This popular yoga pose is a great way to stretch the shoulders, back, and hamstrings before physical activity.
- Start in pushup position
- Deep breathe in, push arms back and hips up towards the ceiling.
- Feel tension in hamstrings and calves.
- Exhale, then reset back to pushup position
2. Arm Circles
