Just found and done this, quite good I thought, she explains what she's addressing up front and is about right with what climbers generally need from yoga.  Just could do with being a bit longer in some of the positions, have to keep the remote handy to keep hitting pause




Worked through this on Saturday and you're right, it's pretty rapid fire. That said, I'm glad it was as a) it felt like a lot of the transitions were helping core etc and b) I'm not fit or flexible enough to hold them for longer!

Anyone know of a decent class in Sheffield on a Tuesday night? Just had to change my night and at the place I currently go it's a different teacher who's a bit too Yogary for me - far too much time spent lying down with your eyes shut.

I used to live in Sheffield and I went to lots of yoga classes. You're somewhat spoilt for choice! I'd recommend 'Unity Yoga' - their studio is in town, just off West Street.
Another good studio is Hot Yoga Sheffield, I've heard that they've opened up a second studio just off Abbeydale road. Their original place is still open and runs classes in Crookes.

Just as a side note, I don't know how advanced you are in your yoga practice, but if you're after something challenging then I'd suggest going for Ashtanga-style classes - you won't be laying down with your eyes shut! Saying that - it can be quite intense.
Vinyasa flow classes are also a good option, as the name suggests there's lots of movement and transition through poses. If you do go to Unity Yoga, Lydia Ainscough is a wonderful yoga teacher and does fantastic vinyasa classes.

Also, asking the teachers directly about their classes and what you want out of them is probably the most cost effective and hassle free way of finding out whether you're going to be laying down with your eyes shut.

For the Sydney, Australia viewers, my big brother David and his wife Val own and run Yoga Hotspot in Chatswood. Quite a few climbers go there ... They sell copies of my book. Woo Hoo !
Cheers,

Oh and this is a good video for opening the shoulders, it's not too fast.

Depending on how much longer you can always play at 75% speed, accessible under settings? I have found this useful on some other 'too quick' yoga videos

You don't sound very flexible.

42 I think?

No I didn't but that could have been it, thanks very much.

Not sure how I missed that, right in the area I've been looking, could've saved me a lot at hassle.
