Course Overview


Learn Yoga For Athletes in this three part course. Maintaining flexibility is imperative for athletes. It serves to optimise performance, and can reduce your risk of injury. This three part course includes yoga classes designed specifically for swimmers, cyclists and runners. These three activities tend to repetitively tighten specific muscle groups. A stretching regime is therefore an essential component of a balanced training program for athletes. The classes in this course systematically guide you through some of the main muscles groups that are involved in these activities. Athletes who are newer to yoga as well as those with pre-existing experience will benefit from the “Yoga For Athletes” course.
