UCanRow2's curator insight, July 29, 10:31 AM

The benefits of yoga are obviously well-known.  We like it too in combination with rowing for either a totally Zen workout or a nice balance of high- and low-intensity.  

 

Low-intensity workouts could be done on-and-off the machine, where you would do the yoga moves then get into the Zen of the flywheel on the erg.  If you're planning on a higher intensity erg session we recommend starting there and ending with the yoga .  Music can help you strike a consistent chord so think about some appropriate yoga-ish tunes for your erg warmup, for example.  

 

If you want to check out some of our fave classes look for our master instructor Angela Hart and her RowFlow class at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, VA outside Washington, DC.  Or if you're in South Carolina don't miss Laura Caylor's Row-Ga class at Greenville Indoor Rowing.  She's certified in indoor rowing, Row-Ga (created by Angela) and yoga.
