Skipping Rope and Yoga Practice

fascia yoga postures yoga practice Sep 21, 2020

You might be wondering what skipping rope has to do with yoga.

Well, it doesn't and it does.

On the one hand it's quite obvious we do not do skipping and hopping movements, especially not repeatedly, in yoga practice.

On the other hand, you can also see from skipping rope, or in fact, any kind of jumping around, that this doesn't happen without the engagement of our muscles. So when we practice, particularly active postures, flows, vinyasa and similar practices, we do need to engage our muscles.

Skipping rope teaches us to engage muscles to support dynamic movements.

If you want to learn more about how to engage your muscles in yoga practice, and how to practice safely, take a look at the AnatomyShow online courses.

Learn with the courses how to engage and work with your fascia, how to have strong feet and ankles, how to protect your knees from hyperextension, how to keep your spine safe and how to have strong shoulders for inversion practices.
