The physical and mental principles of yoga can be implemented as a recovery & cross-training modality in sports training to improve flexibility, stability and strength in addition to smart recovery following your training. Think of it as fine tuning mobility to amplify your potential on training days so you can keep doing what you love in a safe, smart way. With a combination of modifications available per pose, we're going to focus on what we CAN do instead of can't with modifications used in safe discretion tailored to you and your sport.
This no-experience-required non-denominational class is for recreational, or competitive Dragon Boater Athletes ( Paddlin' for MB) who:
*** Have been saying they, "Want to start stretching more"
*** Those who want to increase flexibility, strength and stability
*** Those who, "Can't touch [their] toes".
*** Are interested in prehabbing & rehabbing sore muscles
*** Want to be more attentive to posture, and back pain
*** Want to be more mindful in all of their training & nutrition
*** Want to switch things up with a cross-training / rest day
*** Want to have some autonomy over improving mental health
*** Want to decrease cortisol
(a stress hormone linked to stubborn weight and overall decreased quality of health).
*** Want to get creative with practicing mental endurance
Think of yoga as a manipulation of the nervous system to get your body to do more of what you want it to...Because when we are mindful of both our physical and mental health...we find that we are better runners, lifters, athletes and overall... better people.
