“Yoga with Sage has eased my stiff body from thousands of hours of air travel and helped me relax after the intensity of close games. And when the stress keeps me awake at night, I practice breathing techniques learned with yoga.”
 
Roy Williams, University of North Carolina men’s basketball coach, ongoing student for over a decade

people

I work with aspiring and current yoga teachers in various formats.

Learn to teach with me

I also teach open classes for athletes and everyone. My students include everyone from newcomers to yoga to experienced students. Some are just tight and tired people. Some compete or coach at the professional and collegiate level. Others are just happy to head into the woods for a hike, ride, or run. Wherever you are, I’d love to have you in class.

Find a class

  • In person: Yoga for Athletic Balance, Carrboro Yoga, Mondays, 6:00 p.m.
  • Online: YogaVibes, Core Strength for Real People

principles

Yoga can be the perfect complement to sports training. But many athletes are turned off by yoga because:

  • It seems too easy—and therefore boring.
  • It feels too hard, and thus painful, intimidating, or embarrassing.
  • Or it might be a nice class but out of sync with your training, leading to fears that you’re wasting your time or undermining your hard work.

My classes offer lots of options, so you can find the right yoga for you.

Yoga for athletes isn’t athletic yoga. The intensity of your yoga practice should be in inverse proportion to the intensity of your training or other physical pursuits. Yoga should help you feel balanced.

Maybe you don’t identify as an athlete. But if you feel tight and tired and spend much of your day in a chair, you have a lot in common with athletes! Come to a class with me or follow along with a video and you will feel better.
