I’m excited to be among the very first presenters at 1440 Multiversity, a new center opening in the redwood forest outside Santa Cruz this May. Join me for:
Are you ready to take your game to the next level? Yoga’s emphasis on form, focus, and breath will make you a better, well-rounded athlete. Learn how yoga complements mental and physical training, translating into increased balance and enjoyment in your sport and your life.
Join Sage Rountree—author, coach, endurance athlete, triathlete, and yoga teacher—for this program designed specifically for athletes of all sports and levels of yoga experience (including none).
This weekend, you will learn:
The practice you will experience with Sage is not an athletic form of yoga. Yoga for athletes is a way to use yoga as a complement to sports training so you can move fluidly and powerfully, focus and recover better, and achieve peak performance in sports and beyond.
The field of yoga for athletes is growing in exciting directions as more and more athletes credit yoga with taking their performance to the next level. Specializing in yoga for athletes allows you to share yoga’s benefits with a new, receptive population.
Sage Rountree, a pioneer in the field, has multifaceted experience as a coach, athlete, and teacher working with endurance-sports athletes and collegiate teams.
This five-day intensive on yoga for sports training is designed for yoga teachers interested in working with athletes of all sports. It will also be useful for coaches, PE teachers, and personal trainers.
Through lecture, group discussion, led yoga sequences, and practice teaching, you will learn:
You will leave with a new awareness of the parallels between yoga and sports training, empowered with skills to teach athletes in studio, gym, team, or one-on-one settings.
Outside of program time, we’ll have an amazing stay. Campus accommodations include all-natural, farm-to-table cuisine; daily offerings in meditation, yoga, fitness, and other classes and events; as well as four miles of forest hiking (running!) trails on a beautiful 75-acre campus. There’s a wellness center with bodywork modalities designed for relaxation and whole-body integration, steam rooms, and a large outdoor hot tub with an expansive view of the redwoods. I’m super excited and look forward to working with you there! Read all about it at 1440.org.
