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

Post-Surf Stretches

I hope you've had a chance to practice some of the pre-surf stretches! Remember, it's best to save the deeper stretches for after your surf session. Whereas the pre-surf stretches are intended to increase your circulation, warm up your body and help you get mentally prepared for a great session, the post-surf stretches are your chance to move a little deeper and release any tension from the day.

These are a few of my favorite post-surf stretches! I hope you enjoy them, and remember to always..

Breathe ~ relax ~ focus ~ and enjoy!

Low back release "Windshield Wipers" --from Yoga for Board Sports! I admit -- this is one of my all-time favorite post-surf stretches...and I think you'll feel the same way once you do it. My hubby David (still ripping on a shortboard at the age of 50+) helps demonstrate:

 

 

Shoulder Opener with Leash -- From YFS III.  Wow -- this one feels great! You'll need an old surf leash, strap or towel for this one. Once you get the hang of it, you can move at a slower pace, close your eyes and just linger and breathe into the area where you feel the deepest stretch:

 

Down Dog -- the Yoga for Surfers way! Learn how to do the pose for maximum stretch in your hamstrings, shoulders and spine. It gets easier every time you do it! From Yoga for Board Sports:

 

Coming up next will be a few poses that will help you improve your core strength and balance for more power and flexibility on your carves and cutbacks!

 

“Your surfing will be that much better for it!” ~ Eastern Surf Magazine


First and foremost I want to say thank you. I have been in yoga for a long time and am a surfer. I have encountered many teachers who have lacked the skill of teaching and style of your videos. I go to many different schools and I find that you still are a better teacher and I enjoy the flow (From position to position and skill levels) that you've created for your dvd's. I live in San Diego and am looking to get my teaching certification. I don't know if you teach at a studio or have any direction that you can give to a school that has your talent. If you have any suggestions or do teach I would love to go to a few of your classes. If nothing else I just wanted to send you an email saying your a great talent in yoga and I appreciate what you've added to the practice. Thank you for your time.

"My surfing ability has advanced dramatically"

I would like to praise your work in joining yoga with surfing. I've been doing the YFS program for a year and a half and I have to tell you how much I love YFS III "Unleashed" (I love this DVD ... smart move!) I am 47 years old and my surfing ability has advanced dramatically since joining you in Yoga for Surfers. Amazing!

"This is exactly what we've been looking for!"

We find your dvds the best instructional yoga dvds we have ever come across, with the added bonus that Peggy focuses on poses aimed at surfers.

We find the pace, transitions and poses are all perfect for what we have been seeking in a dvd yoga set. We even prefer your set to classes, as not only are the workouts exactly what we are looking for, but we can do it at our own convenience, a huge bonus in our busy (read hectic) lives.

I bought a second set as a gift to give to friends (he surfs, she doesn't; he has traditionally 'bah hum-bugged' yoga but is now interested due to our, and our friends, own enthusiasm for your dvd set).

Apologies for all the the gushing, but we really are extremely pleased with your dvd set!

Warmest regards,
