CrossFit HighGear believes in proper form and movement yet many of us have restricted flexibility and limited core strength keeping us from achieving our best physical potential. We get that. We also understand that our minds benefit from an hour of calm on a weekly basis. For this reason, we are happy to provide Yoga to anyone interested in unwinding and improving strength and flexibility.
Our Yoga classes are held every Wednesday at 7 pm and are led by Coach Becca. Becca Tighe began teaching yoga in 2009 after training with Baron Baptiste in Catskills, NY. For many years Hot Vinyasa Flow Yoga was her primary fitness, while trying other things like boot-camp programs and Spinning. As a CrossFitter herself, she understands how yoga can specifically help movements in the gym. She can relate to the weaknesses that need attention to improve specific skills. It can be difficult to to squat, do handstand pushups, kettle bell swings, etc. if your hips, shoulders or ankles don’t have enough flexibility. Tighe is very excited to bring awareness to the mobility side of Crossfit HighGear! She believes “if you CrossFit, you need yoga”!
Our Yoga program is open to the community, to CrossFitters and non-CrossFitters alike.
