Yoga for Athletes with Liz Richards at The Ananta Yoga Studio

The popular Yoga for Athletes Class with Liz Richards at The Ananta Yoga Studio, Wicklow is back for another run from September 2012 – May 2013!

Commencing on Friday 14th September and running each week from 7.30pm-9.00pm this specialised Yoga for Athletes class at The Ananta Yoga Studio, The Tap, Kilbride, Co. Wicklow is suitable for anyone involved in other activities or sports on a regular basis such as walking, running, cycling, swimming, rugby, golf, tennis, football, equestrian sports and many more.

Liz Richards  is a Yoga Alliance Certified Instructor with over 2500 hours teaching experience behind her.  She has been running this popular County Wicklow Yoga for Athletes class for over a year in association with members of The East Coast Tri- Club and Iron Man Training and it is a yoga class attended by both men and women.

She has worked closely with several top athletes to help improve their breathing techniques, strength, flexibility, stamina and mental focus. It is also attended by students involved in a diverse range of other activities such as rugby, football, tennis, golf, running, swimming, cycling and equestrian sports all whom have reported a significant improvement in their athletic performance and enjoyment of their chosen sport.

In these specialized classes the primary focus is on injury prevention, performance enhancement and developing mental clarity. Yoga is the perfect way to counteract the effects of other sports on the body.

Students learn how to protect the areas of the body which are vulnerable in many sports such as the ankles, knees, hips and lower back, through correct alignment and engagement of the three platforms or stabilizing junctions of the body. The joints become more open, muscles are gently stretched and the body generally becomes more free.

Using both static and dynamic classical yoga postures and specific breathing techniques in an intelligently sequenced Vinyasa Flow Yoga class, athletes are often surprised at the many physical and mental benefits a regular yoga practice has to offer.

Suitable for any students who are involved regularly in any sporting activities and are curious about how yoga can bring balance to every aspect of their lives.
