The Intermediate videos require some yoga experience but not necessarily a great deal. The level of difficulty refers more to the extent of Flexibility or Strength in the athlete rather than on accumulative hours on the mat. These routines span all of the Yoga 15 skills.

Video

Mobility Flow

This sequence combines static stretching and joint mobilisation to loosen you up from head to toe and get you moving like an athlete.

Video

Rest Day

The first half of this routine focuses on increasing mobility in the spine and upper body and the second half on opening up the hips and groin.

Morning Flow

When I do a sequence like this in the morning, I feel pretty bulletproof. It's a great way to stretch out the kinks and get your body moving.

In Flow

You will need to have a fair amount of yoga experience to attempt this sequence as the pace is relatively fast and the flow is continuous.

Video

Warrior Flow

This sequence is relatively fast-paced. It requires good balance, coordination and reaction speed. Focus on refining your movements.

Dynamic Flow

This sequence trains mobility, flexibility and strength. It's great for opening up the hips, improving spinal mobility and strengthening the core.

Video

Core Strength 2

An integrated core will maximise your power, speed and control in your sport as well as helping to protect you from persistent lower back pain.

Core Strength 4

In this sequence we train both core strength and core flexibility. This has great benefits for performance and for reducing the risk of injury.

Video

Quads + Hips

Depending on the flexibility of your quads and hip flexors, this sequence is either going to be incredibly hard or a walk in the park.

Video

Hip Openers III

If tight hips are an issue for you, cycle through multiple different hip-opening sequences so that you don't get stuck in repeating patterns.

This sequence combines twists and sidebends to stretch muscles throughout the body. Make sure that you are warmed up before you start.

Video

Twists + Turns

This twisting sequence is designed to wring out tension throughout the body, with a specific focus on the spine, abs, obliques and hips.

Video

Hip Stability

In this sequence, notice how challenging your balance builds stability in the hips and core. This can help to prevent lower back pain.

Video

In this flow-style sequence, we step up the pace. It requires a good level of balance as well as familiarity with the classic standing poses.

Video
