yoga for climbers with ann seibert

Do your hamstrings cramp up in stretchy back-step move? Have your shoulders become so tight that making a reach move actually hurts? Then come to Sunday morning Yin Yoga where the goal is to relax and improve flexibility in the areas that get super tight on climbers: shoulders, chest, back, hips and legs. It’s great for a pre-climbing warm-up or for a chill day. So, if you want to avoid cramping up during that key move, join us for yin yoga and keep sending!

Rock Warrior's Way Falling & Commitment Clinic

Taught by Warrior’s Way trainer Laura Sabourin (of Flagstaff Climbing!), this clinic addresses fear of falling and improving commitment. Participants will do falling, movement, and resting exercises and apply all learned skills to a challenging route. This will be done in small increments creating appropriate progressions for each individual student. Each student will leave with a structured method for taking appropriate risks with diminished fear.

Students learn: • To fall safely • To give a cushioned belay • To distinguish between no- and yes-fall zones • How to engage no- and yes-fall zones • To break a climb into smaller risk events • Better risk assessment • How to rest effectively • To improve breathing • To trust the body • To create flow and momentum • To commit more deliberately • To reduce fear

Target Student: • For climbers who rope climb • For climbers who seek to improve commitment and diminish fear of falling

Prerequisites: • Minimum 6 months climbing experience • Climb a minimum of 5.9 in the gym without falling or hanging • Some exercises are on toprope; some are on lead. Being able to lead climb is not required, however.

If students want to lead during the clinic they must get lead certified at the gym PRIOR to the clinic date.

Equipment Needed: • Harness, shoes, and belay device • Helmet is recommended but not required (The gym will provide all if needed)

Cost: $99 members; $119 non-members

All participants will receive: • A free laminated reminder card • A reference PDF on all exercises • Free follow-up email lessons • 20% discounts from WW sponsors: BlueWater Ropes; Evolv shoes
