Widening Your Yoga Lens: Strategies for Teaching to Athletes Yes, leading a yoga class for the athletic population is different from a studio class! Instructors should feel confident in their anatomy application, comfortable with making modifications for injuries and varying physical capacities, as well as teaching to the competitive (and sometimes ego-lead) mindset. As practitioners let's embrace an opportunity to intuitively shift our approach so that the nourishing benefits of a regular yoga practice can be appreciated by an athlete's mind and body. Objectives: -Discuss Sports Psychology and Mindset -Examine Anatomy Under the Sports Medicine Microscope -Define Yoga Indications/Contraindications Apply the 8 Limbs of Yoga for Training Recovery -Develop Sport-Specific Cuing & Sequencing *Earn 2.5 CE contact hours for RYTs. *Attend Teaching Yoga to Athletes (on August 19th or October 29th) and Asana Deconstruction (on June 3rd or September 24th) for $73 each.
