Yoga for Athletes: Strength, Flexibility, and Focus
Friday January 26, 2018 @ All Day at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health
For all levels of athletic or yoga experience; no prior yoga experience required.
Athletes are often turned off by yoga because it seems too hard, too easy, or out of sync with their training. Triathlete, coach, and yoga teacher Sage Rountree demystifies yoga and explains exactly how it fits with training and competition. Yoga’s emphasis on form, focus, and breath translates to increased efficiency and enjoyment in your sport and your life.
In this weekend workshop, you’ll learn poses to increase your range of motion and flexibility, especially in the hips and hamstrings. We will spend time cultivating sport-specific core strength and balance, examine yoga as mental training, and learn how incorporating yoga’s approach to mind-body integration can make you a better athlete. Practicing the poses and techniques taught in this workshop increases your flexibility, core strength, stability, balance, and physical and mental endurance while lowering recovery time and risk of injury.
