Gwen's Power Yoga for Sportsby Gwen Lawrence
Unlike regular yoga (which has tremendous benefits) – Power Yoga for Sports was specifically developed to combat the tremendous stress professional and amateur athletes place on their bodies.
Athletes are all too familiar with waking up in the morning with any one of the following: sore back, knee or ankle pain, tight hips, sore shoulders
and on and on…
In this course, Gwen has taken the skills she's learned as a Massage Therapist, added them to Power Yoga and incorporated the unique needs of athletes from a variety of sports to create – ‘Power Yoga for Sports’.
It’s this hybrid method of yoga that is preventing injuries for athletes, by giving them increased flexibility, stronger joints, a symmetrical body (I can’t stress how important that is!) and increased focus on the field or court.
