Key Yoga Poses for Snowshoers

Headed to the mountains to hover on the snow?  Find some time pre-stroll to climb onto your yoga mat to stretch the glutes, calves, and hamstrings for ascending and descending the mountain. Open the hips to stretch the adductor and abductor muscles for turning your shoes. Finally, fire up the core to stabilize your icy walk and support the back.  Hold each pose for 10 breaths and make sure to remove your snowshoes before you hit the mat.
