These yoga practices offer optimal performance, body-conscious safety and birthright bliss! For athletes of all ages and at any stage in the training process. These yoga techniques are especially made to increase vitality and to generate more energy for maximum brain-body functioning.
The cost of sports- and athletic-related injuries is hefty.
The yoga/meditation practices we offer produce benefits for the athlete on the physical, mental and energetic levels.
I teach Sattva Yoga (Anand Mehrotra) techniques to reduce stress and improve wellness and to allow the individual to tap into the genius brain allow the full brain-body apparatus to function at optimal level, which significantly reduces possible injury due to “not seeing that rock” (and twisting the ankle) or not knowing when to slow down or engage a larger muscle (and thereby pull a hamstring, etc).
This yoga training can be delivered as a series of classes or as a one-off workshop.
Please contact me directly to discuss your needs. I also work with groups.

The cost of sport-related injury is a cost no one can afford. Sport-related injuries cost millions per year in surgery, physical therapy, as well as psychotherapy for depression, addiction, anger, frustration... that's why, all over the world, people are turning toward yoga/mediation.
Neuroscience is also discovering how meditation and yoga practices change the brain areas related to perception, body awareness, emotions, complex thinking and sense of self - all of which factors into an athlete’s performance.
These sessions focus on building emotional intelligence through yoga and meditation so individuals perform at their peak and always present so they can enjoy the process!
The sessions are for individual athletes as well as teams or groups. The sessions can accompany all levels - the Sattva technique welcomes the individual practitioner to their innate wisdom to decide their personal level. This yoga/meditation is all inclusive!
