About Us

The Institute of Yoga Sports Science® (YSS), is the global leader in providing a world-class sports-specific yoga education.


Our mission is simple: we train yoga and sports professionals to deliver sports-specific yoga to athletes, tailored to the demands of their sport and integrated into their training in an easy, sustainable and enjoyable way.  


Sport-Specific yoga IS the missing link in sports training. Through the application of science, we bridge the gap between yoga and sport, enabling yoga enthusiasts and athletes of all ages and abilities to benefit from our tried and tested methods.


Our evidenced-based, sports-specific yoga approach of teaching yoga to athletes, provides our students with a unique opportunity to turn a passion for yoga and sport, into a professional career as a Yoga Sports Coach™.


Each student that has trained and completed their certification as a Yoga Sports Coach™ has contributed to our growing database of evidence, demonstrating how and why yoga works to help prevent injury and improve athletic performance.


Since 2009, we have been delivering our sports-specific yoga Courses online and are one of the pioneers in teaching yoga in a virtual classroom.  We now deliver our Courses both ONLINE and in a LIVE training environment.


The Institute of Yoga Sports Science® has its campus in Brooklyn Heights, New York. LIVE Courses, currently in the US and the UK.   


"Athletes need yoga in their training. As an Olympian I know how much yoga could have helped me, sadly I was only introduced to it as I retired from competing at the highest level. As more athletes use yoga,
more yoga professionals will be needed to support them.
If you are looking for a world-class yoga education in how to teach yoga to athletes, then you will find it here with Hayley Winter and the team at the Institute of Yoga Sports Science."
