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.

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.

Join us as we examine some of the common running patterns that can result in injury.

Functional Movement Systems Review

Functional Movement Systems Book Review

While very detailed in its explanations of movement, this book is tough to finish.  The information is good, but it’s very disorganized.  It will take a lot of work to learn the SFMA and FMS just from this book, but it can be done.  As for the screens themselves, I use them regularly in my practice.  While they aren’t perfect or comprehensive, no other screen is either.  If you make your way through the first five chapters, you will learn some of principles behind safe and effective training clients.
