Are you ready to take your game to the next level? Yoga’s emphasis on form, focus, and breath will make you a better, well-rounded athlete. Learn how yoga complements mental and physical training, translating into increased balance and enjoyment in your sport and your life.

Join Sage Rountree—author, coach, endurance athlete, triathlete, and yoga teacher—for this program designed specifically for athletes of all sports and levels of yoga experience (including none).

This weekend, you will learn:

  • Poses to increase your stability, balance, range of motion, and flexibility, especially in the hips and hamstrings
  • Techniques to enhance your physical and mental endurance while lowering recovery time and risk of injury
  • How to cultivate sport-specific core strength
  • Ways to incorporate yoga’s approach to mind-body integration in both training and competition.
