Yoga for Athletes

Saturday May 31st 230-430

Yoga for Athletes Workshop:

The workshop is designed to address muscular imbalances to improve athletic performance and prevent overuse injuries. I aim to bridge the gap between running/cycling and yoga so that runners/cyclists can stay in their sport for decades to come.

Who can benefit:

All levels and experience are welcome – from the recreational runner/cyclist to the high- performance athlete. Even those affected by desk jobs and ‘sitting culture’ will benefit.

The Workshop Includes
An interactive discussion – we will look at common muscular imbalances, as well as conduct a physical self-assessment of underused and over active muscles in our bodies

The Yoga for Athletes class – Incorporating the ChatterRunGirl four-part philosophy, we will address mechanisms of breath, joint stability, joint mobility, and mental focus. The

sequence will be designed to focus on tight hips, dominant quads, weak hamstrings and glutes, as well as postures to strengthen the upper body, stabilizer muscles and core

A guided meditation – focus on the mental endurance required for race day.
