|About||Yoga aimed at helping amateur and professional sportspeople optimising performance and aiding recovery process at any level and sport.|
I began my journey into yoga in 2007, when I attended my first Ashtanga class in Manchester. I have never looked back since, and, as a teacher, my aim is to share the benefits of this practice with others.
I am available for privates and/or group sessions, teaching primarely “Yoga for Athletes” but also Ashtanga (only privates) in Lisburn, Belfast and surrounding areas.
"Yoga for Athletes" is designed for athletes any level and sport. Yoga can play a key role in the prevention and rehabilitation of sports injuries. By improving flexibility and balance in your body you will be able to optimise performance and aid any recovery process. The exercises, which will be tailored to your specific requirements and/or weak areas, generally focus on stretching and conditioning the fascia, mobilising joints and stabilising imbalances that can adversely affect postural alignment and performance.
Ashtanga Yoga follows a set series of postures, and links movement to breath, so that moving into and out of each pose is as important as holding the poses themselves. This practice can facilitate improvements in upper body and core endurance, trunk and hamstring flexibility, shoulder and ankle-calf flexibility, as well as a reduction in total body fat percentage. There are six series in the Ashtanga style, and everyone starts with Primary Series. I will guide you into and out of each pose in the Primary Series and give a breath count while you hold the poses.
