Yoga & Mindfulness for Athletes

According to the Urban Dictionary, the definition of an athlete is “An individual who participates in sports characterized by dedication, focus, intelligence and work ethic.” The benefits of participation in athletics are many, however specialization in a single sport at a young age may lead to an increased risk of injury and unnecessary psychological stress.

Created by two experienced yogis who share a variety of best practices for integrating yoga and mindfulness into a training regimen. This introductory one-day training includes group discussion, facilitated brainstorming, and a sampling of yoga and mindfulness practices for athletes. Materials will include anatomy focused lesson plans appropriate for sports team and individualized athletic practices and training sessions. Practical tools will be presented in both lecture and experiential format.

"The Trauma-Informed Yoga and Mindfulness professional development workshop was extremely informative and engaging. The instructor did a wonderful job of balancing sharing content knowledge, discussion, and physical practice. The tools and trauma informed practices presented will be simple to bring back to my classroom and beneficial for the scholars. The workshop provides both specific strategies and a trauma-informed lens to view your current practices through. I highly recommend attending!
