Yoga For Athletes!

Yoga For Athletes!

Begins September 5 at 5:30pm
Alexander YMCA

Athletes in general go fast and hard. We push and push and push ~ sometimes to the point of injury. Default for many athletes is GO or STOP. Balance does not come easily or naturally.

In Yoga, it is important to slow down enough to observe what is going on in your body. When you come to your mat, seek BALANCE. Look for quality of movement. Incorporating Yoga into your regular routine will help you build a well balanced body.

Athletes also tend to isolate different muscle groups in their training. We build up a “strong side.” Yoga helps the athlete uncover weaknesses and imbalances. Working these underused muscle groups will help create a more balanced fitness routine and eventually lead to better performance.

This and much more will be incorporated into

For tennis players and other athletes working to find balance, flexibility, strength, and core stabilization. Tennis includes a lot of fast lunging, swinging and twisting on the court. Focus and a clear mind are needed to be successful in your matches. We will work on tight hips and hamstrings, shoulders, and legs. We’ll also focus on using the breath as a tool for focus and stress as we flow through asanas (yoga poses), ending in a nice calming Savasana!

Game On! 

If you have Monday matches, share the cost of the 4 weeks with teammates who are not scheduled to play on a date you are.
