To some, "skiing" means hanging out in a mountain lodge sipping hot chocolate. But to many, skiing is an intense full body workout and a staple weekend activity in the winter. And with any workout, it's important to make sure your body is prepared to move and perform well.
Coach Yvette Lenhart (Strength & Serenity Retreat) is not only a knowledgeable and effective Pilates instructor, she is also an avid skier. One of the most important things she discovered when she first starting skiing was that the more she learned to relax and use her muscles properly and efficiently, the easier it felt to ride the slopes.
Before she skis, Yvette does a series of warm-up exercises that have helped her become a better, more relaxed skier. Read on to see the moves that will keep you nimble this skiing season.
