Yoga for Strength Athletes & Powerlifters

Yoga for Strength Athletes & Powerlifters

This post is designed for two types of readers.  Strength athletes — men and women that want to do yoga to gain range of motion and flexibility.  It’s a wake-up call to all those bendy, skinny yoga teachers who struggle working with strength athletes.  For my fellow yoga teachers, I’ll warn you that some of comments in this post will be a shock to you.  I know you don’t have many people like me in your classes, and you should be wondering why.  This post is all about the #blindprejudice some yoga teachers have against strength athletes and powerlifters.

Through yoga, I have vastly improved my strength, lost weight, and drastically improved my flexibility. I especially love teaching inversions, arm balances, and handstands.

Yoga Adjustment Private Yoga Lessons

Yoga Adjustment to Improve your Health

Practicing yoga is a deeply intimate, personal experience, which is why many people choose to start a home practice. This is where you get to be one with your body. It’s a place to move into the breath and release tension in the muscles that so easily gather throughout your days. To really let go, though, you need a little help from someone else; you need a yoga adjustment.

Here’s how to improve your mobility…
