This manual for yoga teachers and bodyworkers provides guidance for working with athletes of all disciplines. It teaches basic principles for application of techniques. Covering yoga background, biomechanics, postures, breathing and mental training, it creates a bridge between evidence-based modern sports medicine and ancient practices of yoga.
Many sports people are interested in trying yoga techniques in the hope of improved flexibility, strength, breathing and concentration, but many can be prevented from optimal results due to a lack of understanding on the part of yoga teachers of the specific physical requirements of their sport. This is a manual for professionals who work with athletes of all disciplines and shows them how to adapt yoga practice for swimmers, cyclists, runners, tennis players and more. This bridge between evidence-based modern sports medicine and the ancient practices of yoga, provides solid training guidance as well as offers psychological wisdom to help control and refine the actions of the mind. Essential reading for yoga therapists and teachers, athletic coaches and bodywork professionals who work with athletes.
