Laird Hamilton’s Ten-Minute Morning Yoga

Posted Posted in Laird Hamilton SUP, Paddleboard Training, Uncategorized, Yoga

Over the past 30 years, I’ve tried almost every kind of workout. But one remains consistent: a series of yoga poses I do first thing most mornings. The routine doesn’t require chanting or opening your chakras. It’s four basic stretches that activate the muscles, open the joints after hours in bed, and clear the cobwebs. Best, the whole thing requires only 10 minutes. Before each pose, take a deep breath and exhale as you move into position. Once you reach your limit, breathe in and exhale again; this helps muscle fibers relax and allows you to go deeper into the stretch.

There are several reasons to train with a partner or group. Firstly, it is someone to hold you accountable on those lazy days when you really don’t want to paddle, but know you should. When you’ve made plans to meet, you gotta show up or risk being called out on Facebook for being a flake or a “loser.” Also, when you set a workout goal with your training partners you are more likely to complete a challenging workout or task than you would be if you were alone.
