OBJECTIVE OF THE COURSE
Are you a yoga teacher or physical therapist wondering how yoga could benefit your clients who regularly do sport?
Whether you’ve just qualified, been teaching for years, or never taught yoga before (but work in physical therapy), this training is for you. It will give you the unique skills, insights and understanding necessary to work with people whose sport affects their body.
There will also be a strong focus on the mental aspects that can affect sport performance.
You will start from the bottom up, learning to assess and identify your clients’ needs and then applying a physical yoga sequence to match those needs. You will learn how to adapt ‘traditional’ yoga poses to the specific requirements of your client, within both an informal/amateur setting and a professional environment.
Sophia’s provision of yoga sessions focused towards professional athletes is top class, in both programming and delivery. Her knowledge and understanding of the demands of professional sport set her apart from other yoga professionals, with her tailored sessions promoting a performance increase in the athletes she works with.
