Yoga Sports Coach™

YSS Graduation Date:  March 2014

I have been a physiotherapist for over 10 years and am well aware of the benefits of adapted yoga moves to patients. In the last 5 years I have worked predominently in MSK outpatients and more sports based clients and always felt specific stretching was never fully incorporated into their training schedule.


I went to London 3 years ago to visit my sister and there was an offer for a Yoga class for 1 month daily for £20.  I went along every day for the week I was there and loved it. Since then I have been trying to incorporate it more in my practice and when I looked into Yoga Sports Science I felt I had to become part of the programme. I hope it will benefit my clients and develop my coaching and treatment skills as well as enhance the scientific evidence base for yoga to be more widely used across all sports and rehabilitation facilities.
