About the Class
Training is so much more than getting your workouts done and all the best athletes in the world know this to be true. Athletic performance pushes your body to the edge by inducing controlled levels of damage but without proper balance, physical and mental, athletes are at a greater risk for injury. This heated power vinyasa class, specifically designed for the athlete body and mind, will strengthen common areas of weakness, lengthen soft tissue, increase range of motion and open joint space. This class is founded on teaching yoga’s mindfulness practices in the midst of a challenging workout. Athletes will be guided to strengthen their focus on present moment awareness which is the basis for entering the coveted state of flow. Athletes will leave this class feeling completely wrung out, restored and ready to master their next training session.
