Flow & Restore – Yoga for the Athlete

Yoga benefits the athlete in many ways. Yoga increases flexibility, balance, and strength which can result in improved performance, injury prevention and faster recovery for everyone and athletes of all levels. A regular yoga practice will also improve your mental focus and mental endurance which are so critical for athletes.

How yoga helps the athlete:

Flexibility
Stretch tight muscles and improve your range of motion

Strength
Entire body training to improve muscle strength and stability of joints

Balance
Improve balance and coordination in standing postures

Injury Prevention
Correct imbalances produced by your regular training

Mental Training
Develop a calm mind in challenging postures

PLAY’s Flow & Restore class is the perfect class for athletes on an easy training day or as a second workout on a more active day. We address the most commonly overused and restricted parts of an athlete’s body while improving core strength and balance.

Each class starts with a mellow vinyasa flow to build heat and strength. The second half of class focuses on increasing flexibility in the legs, hips, and spine by holding poses for a longer period of time. Finish off the class with peaceful resting positions and recharge for your next workout.

Join me Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10am at Peace Love and Yoga.

Room is mildly heated (~90 degrees). All levels.
