Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is yoga good for athletes?

    Yes! Yoga is a perfect compliment to sports training. We focus on mobility, stability, and flexibility training as well as many other sports pre and rehab techniques to help athletes improve their game.

  • What is the best type of yoga for athletes?

    Great question! And this depends on the goals of each athlete; restorative yoga is great to promote muscle repair while vinyasa yoga is great to work on balance and strength. We’re able to mix and match the style(s) for a custom program that works alongside your current training.

  • Does yoga improve athletic performance?

    Many professional sports coaches are including yoga as part of training both on and off season. From improved mobility to increased mental focus through breath work, yoga has a great ability to improve athletic performance.

  • Does yoga reduce injuries?

    The focus of muscle and spine strengthening found in yoga practice makes your tendons and ligaments less susceptible to breakdown and tear. We see yoga as a proactive approach towards restoration, repair, and overall health and wellness longevity.
