If you’re an athlete looking for yoga classes you can use around your training, then you have landed upon the best website this year!
And just for you, I have a yoga for athletes beginners video class.
This 45-minute youtube yoga class for athletes is going to open your body up. And teach you how to move with your breath. So you can step out of that ‘fight-or-flight’ mode and cool your jets for recovery.
You and I both know the benefits of yoga…
- Improved flexibility
- Better mobility
- Stronger body
- Clearer mind
So I am glad you are here with me today!
Built By Yoga is inclusion of more modern exercise modalities to complement a yoga practice. The idea is that workouts / classes are “built by yoga”.
We try to keep a lot of the elements in tact. Specifically, the breathing. You will learn to move with your breath.
Why Should Athletes Do Yoga?
One thing that I want to stress the most, is that yoga does a damn good job at tying up the loose ends…
What do I mean by loose ends?
I don’t mean Mafia job kinda loose ends. I don’t think you can down-dog your way outta those ones…
What I mean, are those weaknesses not being addressed in your regular routine.
We fall into those repetitive movement patterns. Performing the same training over and over.
And it makes sense! It’s important to train for Progressive Overload with your strength and performance related goals.
Well. You should be progressing in all aspects.
BUT… if you are like most…
You likely haven’t been putting a lot of attention into mobility or flexibility. Adding yoga helps tremendously.
Not only does it help you improve your range of motion (which is great for athletic performance, btw)…
…but yoga also does a fantastic job of strengthening the deep connective tissue surrounding your joints!
Yoga Also Helps With Mental Clarity & Emotional Reactivity
In a moment, you will learn about controlled breathing. We will just focus on movements that are controlled with the breath.
Yoga creates a ‘meditation in motion’ through pranayama (that’s breathing) and asana (that’s the physical part).
Like I said, most of the classes I teach are adapted variations of traditional classes. Featuring more modern exercise movements.
But the most important thing, is to keep with a consistent practice!
After you do the yoga for athletes class, you might want to try your hand at the 30-day power yoga challenge I put up on YouTube January 2021.
Without further ado, here’s your yoga for athletes beginners YouTube class. Enjoy!
