*Top 10 ways Yoga can Help Athletes:
Recovery from injury
I teach yoga classes for groups or individuals as a form of "active recovery" and balancing strength with flexibility. Yoga is a wonderful mode of cross training that can be incorporated during any time of the training cycle. I cater classes to the sport/team and teach sequences of poses that focus on particular muscle groups for the purpose of strenghthening, stretching, and overall stability. Yoga is a form of moving meditation and provides an opportunity to practice mindfullness. Yoga for atheltes provides a space to relax, recalibrate and enhance recovery.
