Yoga for Athletes

Athletes move more than the average person. Excellent. We think that’s laudable. You’re probably type A, you’re ambitious, you’re working towards goals in every aspect of your life. We love that kind of person. We’re like you. Except we found that when we just focused on our athletics, be it running, triathalons, cycling, ski-ing or whatever - our muscles started to feel tired, over-used and under-stretched. Brains can get frazzled. So find yoga for your overworked muscles, clear your brain and give yourself some space to perform better, more efficiently and much less prone to injury.
