Whether you're bouldering at the gym or multi-pitch climbing The Chief, yoga will help improve your performance and prevent injury!

Balance, core strength, body awareness, and focus are foundational to yoga and essential for all climbers. Join us for a climbing-specific yoga class, to learn from an expert yogi and rock climber which poses and flows will serve you best on the wall!

This clinic is FREE for MEC members. No previous yoga experience is required. Please bring whatever gear you have (mats, straps, blocks) to share, as extras are limited :)
