Whether you’re just learning to surf or a seasoned pro, yoga is a wonderful way to complement your passion. And you don’t need to be an expert yogini to reap the benefits! For nearly 10 years, I’ve taught yoga to surfistas at Las Olas surfing for women, so I’ve seen how just a few simple yoga moves can help improve flexibility, prevent injuries, increase balance, develop breath control, and restore muscles essential for surfing.
Like most surfers, you’re probably itching to skip the stretch and dive right into the waves, but if you spend just a few minutes practicing these seven simple yoga moves before and after your surf session, your body will thank you!
