Trainee Yoga Sports Coach™
Why I joined The Institute of Yoga Sports Science®:
I've been a yoga teacher for several years. I practice and teach Ashtanga yoga and Yoga for Sports. I wanted a course that would take my knowledge to the next level and give me a better understanding of the demands of different sports, build on my repertoire of yoga techniques and help me understand what it's like to be an athlete.
I love riding my bike and learning with Yoga Sports Science® gives me the freedom to focus on delivering Yoga for Cyclists while building my knowledge around other sports. I also have a background in research so the institute's evidence based approach really appeals to me.
Once I Qualify as a Yoga Sports Coach™:
Well, I'll never stop learning, that's for sure!
I'm looking forward to working with athletes on a more 1-2-1 basis, learning about their needs and seeing the impact that yoga can have on their performance. I also think there are plenty of advocacy opportunities out there to educate people about the benefits of yoga in (and out) of sport.
