I have prepared this program based on B.K.S. Iyengar's book - Yoga for Sports: A Journey towards Health and Healing, and my years of training as an Iyengar yoga teacher.
I really enjoyed sports as a youth and still do today. I wish I had had proper yoga training when I was younger, not just a few yoga postures. Although this can be a good introduction to yoga in schools, there really is a lot more to developing the mind, cultivating the breath and learning when to keep going and when it is better to recuperate. Sports persons, dancers and musicians must practice a lot. This can take their toll not just physically, but mentally and emotionally - and if not in tune with yourself, can begin to weigh one down with all the other responsibilities.
This program is about Yoga to attain excellence - in flexibility, strength, speed, agility, coordination, concentration, balance and stability.
It also will give tips and yoga practices for games/performances & during travel, recovery from strains, how to overcome over-training and relaxation and rejuvenation for exhaustion and fatigue.
