Why get fit for skiing?

So, you’ve booked your next ski holiday – the date is in the diary and you are looking forward to getting to the ski resort. There’s nothing like a date in the diary to focus your mind and give you that little bit more motivation.

Have you thought about improving your ski fitness so that you can

  • Ski harder or longer 
  • Reduce the risk of getting injured
  • Keep up with friends and family members
  • Enjoy your skiing more
  • Make the most of your time in the mountains
  • Enjoy the apres ski that little bit more!

Exercises to prepare for skiing

As yoga teachers, both Shannon and I are also passionate skiers. The more we have practiced yoga, the more we noticed the similarities between the two activities.

Briefly, both combine both movement (asanas), breathing (pranayama) and focus (drishti), whilst also leaving you pleasantly tired at the end of it!

That’s why we’ve also created our online yoga course for skiers to get ready for the mountains. With unlimited access to the online classes the Ski Fit package will get you ready for the mountains.

If you know someone that is particularly looking forward to the going skiing again – you could always buy them the SkiFit online yoga course as a gift. With unlimited access to the yoga classes and HIIT workouts your friend or family member will be in perfect shape by the time the skiing holiday comes around.
