For nearly twenty years (and counting) Aspen Santa Fe Ballet has been traveling within the country maintaining a strong, fierce reputation. ASFB doesn’t let the boarders of this country stop them as they have embarked on many out of country expeditions and tours as well as participating in world rewound dance workshops and concerts.

As it’s company name may suggest, ASFB derives  from a dual set of home base cities; Aspen, tucked away in the great Rocky Mountains, and Santa Fe, gracing the Southwestern plateau.  Given their shared home towns so to speak, ASFB indulges in both settings absorbing all that their environments have to offer as if they’re yearning for local inspiration…it surely comes across vividly in their live shows.

The Winter time brings with it a promise of speeding down steep slopes here in beautiful Vail Village! While hugely different in approach, yoga and skiing are in reality hugely complementary. Here in Vail we have many adventure driver residents who thrive on excitement!

Skiing and snowboarding are a mix of agility and dexterity achieved over time, regardless if our practice is for an entire season or just a weekend holiday squeezed into our busy schedule. While yoga offers a sense of calm, meditative movements facilitated by breath.  And as every annual skier or snowboarder knows we active muscles on the mountain that aren’t always engaged in the “off seasons”.  So let’s be mindful when warming up so we don’t suffer and interrupt our après-ski indulgences….

Here are my favorite asanas for strengthening thighs:

Forward bend: Offers your hamstrings a deep stretch as it loosens the calve muscles – with your weight in the heels exhale fully here and be sure to support yourself with props that allow you completely fold over and out of your hip crease.

Warrior pose: Stretches hip flexors and hamstrings on the back of the legs while activating your feet, ankles, glutes and quads on the front of the leg. For alignment sake, take a peek down at your front bent leg making sure you can see your big toe!

Chair pose: This is a tough one for me but so beneficial, it’s the classic ski and board pose warming up and building strength in the legs.  Try and keep both legs together fully activated while weight is in the heels of the feet, try and lift your toes here to ensure your weight is well spread!

Reclined cobblers pose: very important as it can prevent knee injury when properly executed. This pose improves the flexibility in your inner thighs!

Warming up your hip flexors is vital as we maximize agility here while skiing and snowboarding.  When we build more strength in our hip flexors we are creating a base of equilibrium and muscle foundation which in turn improves the support to our upper body!

Engaging the core muscles of the abdomen enhances good turns on the slopes and alleviates pressure form the knees, protecting the joints from injury.

Asanas for maximizing core strength:

Tree pose: This pose is awesome, engaging the core, quads, calves, ankles and spine while stretching the hip flexors, inner thighs, chest and shoulders.  Not to mention, balance! Tree pose promotes mobility in the hip and knee joints which supports the slick carving and turning we take on top the mountain.

Spinal twist: Improves spine mobility, glute flexibility and outer thigh muscles. Any spirals we create without body serves as a ringing motion that rides our body of toxins. Deep breaths here…

Downward facing dog: I encourage you all to once a day find yourself in downward facing dog – transitioning into plank position is great for building core strength!

With mindful preparation and a bit of patience you will ready to hit the slopes – pain free!

Enjoy y’all!
