Got a hamstring injury? Yoga is known as a flexibility practice, but what happens when you overstretch your hamstrings? Specifically designed for students who are working with a pulled hamstring or hamstring tendinopathy (often called, “yoga butt”), this class with Rachel will functionally strengthen your hamstrings and support your pathway to recovery. It is also an excellent class for students looking to cultivate lower body strength in general.

Thank you Rachel, my legs are a bit like jello now! No injury for me, but it's just a nice strengthening session.

How often (every day too much?) would you recommend doing this class and a few times you suggest doing some of the exercises every day. Which ones are good for daily?

Hi Jessica, when it comes to injuries the best person to ask about frequency is actually You! You will have to monitor how much is too much, and what seems to be helpful in your own body. The poses offered for the everyday are ones that you can incorperate more frequently into you practice, being mindful of maintaining a pain free range of motion.
