About Peggy Hall

After suffering from years of shoulder tendinitis, Peggy was facing surgery and a long recovery out of the water. Thanks to her hubby's insistence to try yoga (yes, he got her into yoga!) Peggy discovered that not only did her shoulder heal but her surfing improved dramatically. Looking for a surf-specific yoga video but finding that nothing like that existed, Peggy set about to become certified in yoga so she could share the stoke of the life-changing benefits of the practice...and now, more than 10 years later, she has positively impacted thousands of surfers the world over who share her mantra, "Breathe - realx - focus - enjoy!"

"The moment of being on a wave is so fleeting -- yet so thrilling -- that you want to experience it again and again, no matter how many waves you catch!  Like surfing, yoga gives you a glimpse into what it is to be in that place of utter freedom – completely outside of the boundaries of time, constraints, obligations and expectations -- just powerful, alive, open and free!" ~ Peggy Hall, Yoga for Surfers Creator

Video #3: Increase your Paddling Power!

Video #1: Catch More Waves       Bonus Video: Behind-the-Scenes

Video #2: Get a Faster Pop-Up   Coming up next: Peggy's secret -- revealed!

´╗┐Here are my favorite exercises to help increase paddling power!

Be sure to watch it all the way through first, then watch it again and follow along with my exclusive sequence, created just for YOU!

(Please note: our regular cinematographer/video editor was out of town, so hubby and I took this project on ourselves!

Of course, the production quality of our Yoga for Surfers DVD is much, much higher than what you'll see in this sequence, but I trust you'll still be able to benefit from my instruction! I didn't want to delay in getting this out to you!)

The Paddling Power Sequence includes:

 - Paddle pull-downs

 - Mid-back rows

 - Rear-delt rows

 - Internal/external rotations

Do 10-15 reps of each exercise, taking a break in between to catch your breath. You can repeat the exercise sequence once or twice if you like.

Do these exercises two or three days a week, with a rest day in between. Perform them after your surf session, or on days you're not surfing.

As always, only go to your limit and never force or strain. Modify if you need to, especially if you're healing a shoulder injury.

Keep breathing deeply throughout the exercises.

Be sure to stretch afterwards, doing your favorites from Yoga for Surfers!

Finally, please let me know how you like the routine! I love getting your comments, so please keep 'em coming!
