YOGA FOR KAYAKERS
Sunday, 01 August 2010
Written by Conor Mihell
Best poses for paddlers


Yoga for Kayakers was originally published in Adventure Kayak magazine.
Yoga and kayaking are perfect complements, says sea kayak and yoga instructor Dympna Hayes, the co-owner of Burlington, Ontario-based learntokayak.ca. Besides increasing flexibility, yoga improves posture, says Hayes, “lengthening the spine and allowing for full torso rotation and engaged core muscles—both of which are essential for strong paddling.” Here are three of Hayes’ favorite poses for paddlers.

CAT-COW PELVIC TILTS
Warms up muscles of the Core
Start on all fours. Exhale, press your hands into the floor and round your spine towards the sky. Then inhale
and move your spine in the opposite direction, creating a hollow in your spine. Repeat five times.

GENTLE SPINAL TWIST
Increases flexibility in the spine
Sit with your legs crossed. Place your left hand on your right knee and your right hand behind the center of your back. Inhale and lengthen your spine, then exhale and twist your torso to the right. Repeat on the opposite side.

COW FACE POSE
Stretches the hips, thighs, shoulders, triceps and chest
Sit with your legs extended. Slide your left foot under your body so it rests beneath your right hip; then cross your right leg over the left. Raise your right arm over your head and bend at the elbow. Bring your left arm up your back and, if you can, clasp your hands together. Hold for several breaths and repeat on the opposite side.
