Trainee Yoga Sports Coach™
Why I joined The Institute of Yoga Sports Science®:
improve my knowledge of yoga, anatomy and ‘one-on-one’ coaching
improve generically my yoga lessons and core teaching skills
be able to offer something additional to a broader scope of clients
attract more men (and women) into yoga
have more authority within the yoga teaching world
add something special to my new yoga business which will attract more business
to engage in the completion of a project with athlete which I think will be a fascinating learning experience
to specialise in the use of yoga as a meditative psychology which sports people can use to good effect in their game
Once I Qualify as a Yoga Sports Coach™:
I would seek to work with sports professionals. Presently I think Golf would be my chosen sport but I’m reluctant to place constraints upon myself at this early stage.
I’m very keen to work with combat veterans or others who: through accident, illness or injury: can no longer pursue a sporting or other active lifestyle as they once did. I think yoga could fill that gap tremendously well and help them to make the physical and mental adjustments needed to cope with the changes in their lives.
Aspirationally I aim to develop my own business “Yoga Mind & Body” as a studio and teacher training facility; with a contemporary approach. Hence my by-line “…yoga without mystique”. But that is all it is at the moment: an aspiration!
I hope I have enough humility to recognise that I have a long way to go. However, without an aim which one is passionate about I don’t believe these things can happen. That being of course if I have the ability, drive and self-belief: plus a bit of serendipity always helps! I think the two often go hand-in-hand.
