In-Person Events

In the past, many athletes have avoided yoga because they believed it to be too easy, too hard or simply not compatible with their training. But times are changing and more and more athletes are crediting yoga for improving their overall strength, efficiency and power.

This three-part series of workshops — which can be taken together or as separate workshops — is designed to help you discover how yoga can compliment your sports training and/or regular workouts. Expect to learn how yoga can benefit you at each stage of your training, boost your performance, reduce the chances of injury, and keep you mentally sharp and focused during competition.

Each workshop will include theory as well as practice and will each focus on three aspects of yoga for athletes: strength and conditioning during non-peak training, recovery during peak training, and injury prevention throughout your training.

Join ultra-marathoner, triathlete, movement specialist, coach, and yoga teacher, Alison, and learn how yoga can compliment your training and improve your athletic performance.

No prior yoga experience is required. These workshops are suitable for all types of athletes at any level of experience — including those just getting started, weekend warriors, recreational and competitive athletes.

Single workshop rate is $30 or get all three classes in the series for $75.

PART 1 — Yoga for Athletes: Strength & Conditioning, February 4, 2018
Yoga offers us so many tools to boost our strength and conditioning during the non-peak times of the year. With careful awareness to the way we move, we can create stronger muscular engagement and coordination that will continue to benefit us long after the practice is over.

In this workshop, we’ll cover how to use yoga in the pre-season or base building period of your training as a way to bolster your strength and conditioning. We’ll also work with ways to use yoga as a pre-workout warm-up and a post-workout cool down.

PART 2 — Yoga for Athletes: Recovery, February 18, 2018
As much as we may want to, we can’t go fast and hard all the time. The stress caused by training and tough workouts is designed to build us up but too much can tear us down instead. The practice of yoga provides a much-needed counter balance to the rigors of training — assuming we choose the right type of yoga.

In this workshop, we’ll cover how yoga can be used to bolster recovery from training and hard workouts. Using a combination of yin and restorative poses to compliment the intensity of your physical workouts, we’ll work to release unnecessary tension so that you can continue to train and avoid physical and mental burnout.

PART 3 — Yoga for Injury Prevention, February 25, 2018
Our lives are made up of repetitive movements — and this is especially true if you engage in sports or physical fitness activities. But you don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from the process of exploring and recognizing where imbalances exist (top to bottom, front to back, and left to right) in your own unique body.

In this workshop, we’ll discuss the essential functions of pivotal joints in the body and the difference between flexibility and mobility. The practice time will be focused on ways to keep the connective tissues in your body strong, mobile, and pliable so that you can establish and maintain optimal joint range of motion, stabilization, and function throughout your training and life.
