Original Yoga Challenge Day 27: Yoga for the IT Bands

Welcome to Day 27 of the Yoga Challenge, and today it’s all about the IT bands! This is that pesky area of connective tissue that runs down the side of your leg from your hip to the outer side of your knee.

When it’s too tight or inflamed it can cause all kinds of little discomforts, so this is the perfect class to help you find some relief. Even if you don’t have any complaints here, this will feel amazing by the time you’re finished!

    I’m running the NYC marathon next week so this IT band workout couldn’t come at a better time! The 30 day challenge has been a perfect complement to my running and mental prep. Thank you so much!!

    Thanks for showing the modified version! The other way hurt my wrist. Loved focusing on this area of the body!

    This felt extra good – saving this one for future use! I haven’t been sure whether to blame it on the fact that I went for a run this morning and am still tight (despite stretching out after), or that it is raining now and the weather is making me ache more.
