Yoga is really starting make its mark in the world of sports. Maybe you’ve even noticed that there is a growing number of professional teams, athletes, and coaches that recognize yoga as a fundamental part of their training.
Using yoga as a supplement to your sports specific training boosts athletic performance on so many levels. Essentially, it improves the overall physical and mental state of your body, allowing you to get even more from your training. Sport-specific training, and participation in your sport, consistently develop certain areas, while other areas remain underdeveloped. By using yoga to address these imbalances and restore balance, you give yourself the opportunity to move better, generate more power, and prevent overuse injuries.
These classes will combine flowing vinyasa sequences with static strength building postures. The blend of movement and stillness aims to build strength and improve flexibility. The flowing sequences will work to promote grace and stability while longer holds will develop strength.
Students will be encouraged to work within the limits of their body, learning to pay attention to their individual needs and not against their limits. We will work hard but in a sensitive way to create an environment that’s healing and that honors each individual, an environment that respects our boundaries and works within them.
In this way, we will create an atmosphere conducive to natural expansion and growth.
We’re not interested in pushing past our edge to get to a place where we think we need to be but instead finding the space for effort and ease.
This class is also held on ZOOM for those who can’t make the class in the studio.
