Event Description

Improve strength, flexibility, and focus
• Increase physical and mental endurance and balance
• Avoid injury and recover faster

Many athletes are turned off by yoga because it’s too hard, too easy, or out of sync with their training. Yoga’s emphasis on form and breath will translate to increased efficiency and focus in your sport and your life.

In this weekend workshop, appropriate for all levels of yoga and athletic experience, we’ll learn poses to increase range of motion and flexibility, especially in the hips and hamstrings. We’ll spend some time cultivating sport-specific core strength and playing with balance, and we’ll examine yoga as mental training, learning how incorporating yoga’s approach to the body and mind can make us better athletes.

As a runner, I was able to see for myself the difference when Yoga was part of my training plan. When I took yoga out of the plan the injuries all started to happen. When I placed yoga back in the plan I felt overall so much better as a runner.
