New Class !! Based on B.K.S. Iyengar's book - Yoga for Sports: A Journey Towards Health and Healing


New Class !! 
Based on B.K.S. Iyengar's book - Yoga for Sports: A Journey Towards Health and Healing

I grew up participating in a variety of dance and sports activities.  I love moving, and found through yoga that mindfulness in movement has brought me more health and healing, physically, mentally, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually.  I started practicing yoga when I was around 21 as a way to "become more flexible", but found it helped me in more ways then I can count. My gratitude to this practice, to the teachers who have passed down the teachings, to B.K.S. Iyengar and his family, and to the many wonderful and supportive teachers, mentors and friends I have made through this journey is endless. 

I have always thought yoga complemented so many other conditioning programs as a way to find inner balance and contentment that when this book came out I was very excited to read it. 

From the book:
All around or 'holistic fitness' means acquiring a judicious combination of physical qualities such as flexibility, speed, agility, stamina, endurance, strength, power; mental characteristics of motivation, focus, concentration and alertness. The emotional quality to withstand and be unaffected by adversities and an ability to adapt to all situations and finally, the temperament to be disciplined to work as a team.

This series of classes is based on this book and I hope will be a great start to incorporating yoga into your conditioning program and your life.

We will start as a 6 week session online via Zoom. You are not required to have the book, but it can be a great addition to your reference library.  
Some sessions will focus more on the speed, agility and endurance aspect, while others will be more on relaxation, recuperation, treatment for common injuries, and ways to lift the emotional centre. 

If you are interested in joining this class please email me at:
Please pass along to others who may also be interested.  As things start to open up again I hope this program can be added to other clubs and groups as a way to connect inward and with teammates.

Time: 10:30-11:45 a.m. CST
