Athletic yoga trains the mind and body while helping athletes become more agile, stronger and more focused. Yoga is based on the principle of integrating the body as a whole and emphasizes a quality of conscious movement. Athletic yoga provides overall physical, mental and psychological conditioning. It also preventing injuries due to the overuse of specific muscles and joints. I have had the privilege of teaching yoga to the Loyola Marymount Men’s Basketball team for the 2016-2017 season.
