We Prove Yoga Works
For over a decade students that have trained with us, as Advanced Yoga Sports Coaches™ have undertaken a Case Study Research project and contributed to providing evidence that yoga positively improves athletic performance and supports athletes as an injury prevention program. Each YSS Case Study submitted by our students is archived within our YSS Research Index. We have one of the largest research databases in the world on the efficacy of yoga in sport.
We bridge the gap between yoga and sport and empower yoga professionals to confidently teach sports-specific yoga to athletes of all ages and abilities, as well as to the general public.
We consider everyone to be an athlete, from elite professionals to Mum’s homeschooling their children,
to healthcare workers dealing with stressful situations on the front line.
We help prepare our students to work with people of any age and ability through our functional and biomechanical approach to applying yoga. The foundation of our yoga teaching is based on biomechanical principles aimed at empowering yoga professionals to adapt and apply to any setting. Yoga sequencing becomes creative and experimental when a solid working knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics is applied.
All of our courses are designed to enhance your current yoga practice, whether you're looking to deepen your own practice or want to share it with others.
Our 20-Hour "How to Teach Yoga Online" Course will give you the tools to take your teaching online in a safe and authentic way.

From my background as an elite gymnast and later in life as a Yoga teacher, the blending of the two sciences of yoga and sport has been a natural evolution for me. I received so much more contact time with Hayley Winter and her team on this online course than I’ve done on any live training courses!’.
