Reflection on how you believe your qualification as a Yoga Sports CoachTM has advanced your skills and how it will benefit athletes who train with you:

  • My skills as a yoga instructor, now Yoga Sports CoachTM have been advanced by a holistic understanding of how to approach working with and connecting to athletes (performance nerves, appropriate breathing techniques, find the root of what the athlete needs for their training then deliver sessions slowly and methodically). I am reminded to return to the beginning moments of when I first started practicing yoga and carry that beginners mindset into my sessions with athletes, less is more. With my background as a yoga instructor, and my history of playing competitive and non-competitive sports, I am able to bring my passion and reverence of sport as well as my passion and reverence for the way yoga has transformed me, and deliver that to athletes who train with me. Athletes could benefit by improved performance, reduced risk of injury, and aid in recovery.

Other Specialism to offer: 

  • I have worked with athletes and non-athletes in physical therapy clinics over 5 years

  • 500 hour yoga teacher training (200 hour YTT certificate & 300 hour YTT certificate)
