Whether you are a runner, golfer, weight lifter, footballer, boxer, cyclist, rock climber or any other sportsman or woman, yoga for sports can be a wonderful addition to enhance your performance, reduce injuries and improve focus, balance and flexibility.
Our muscles respond to how we use them and in the sports that we practice certain muscles over time may shorten or even lengthen from the repetitive actions we perform. Over time this can create limitations in our range of motion and this is where yoga for athletes can help.
Group classes held on Tuesday evenings at 8.30pm in our Brentwood studio working on stability, range of motion and flexibility to retrain muscles that may have been affected through your sport.
Michelle is qualified in Sports Yoga with Sarah Ramsden (whose previous clients include Manchester United, Manchester City and many other athletes), and will be using techniques taught by Sarah, an exceptional experienced teacher in this field to help improve your performance and injury prevention.
Working with our breath on core strength and stability, spinal articulation (after all they say we are as young as our spine), and lengthening muscles that may have shortened over time, combining yoga with your current sport can help improve your performance and give you longevity in your chosen activity or athletic career.
If you are looking for more of a one to one approach rather than a group class to focus on specific areas you wish to improve then this is also something Michelle offers in addition to onsite team training. By initially testing your range of motion she can look to increase mobility, flexibility and strength in areas of your body which may be out of balance from practicing your sport and look to increase your range of motion in these areas.
