I have been working regularly with college athletes for three years now. UAlbany Lacrosse, Saint Rose Soccer, Saint Rose Baseball and former Siena Basketball star Ryan Rossiter are among the yoga lineup. My goal with athletes is to prevent injury, reduce student athlete stress and welcome breath and mindfulness to their college and or professional careers. I have worked with athletes during season, pre-season and off in order to cultivate a faster recovery rate no matter where they are in their training. My knowledge in specific muscle groups such as those found in the hips, hamstrings, piriformis, shoulder girdle and pelvic floor provide a very refined approach to the time athletes spend with me on their mats. Student athletes also have provided encouraging feedback on my yoga nidra ( guided meditation of the sort) before game days 😉
Yoga is truly seen as one of the greatest gifts for an athlete- the ability to enhance concentration through relaxation, the ability to train on a more consistent basis and the encouragement of knowing you are preventing the chances of injury- thus allowing for more time doing what you love!
