Teaching Yoga to Athletes and in Sport ( 7 hrs CPD)

How best to work with the athletes in your class – what they need and more importantly what what they don’t need...The Amazing Sarah Ramsden, lead yoga teacher at Manchester City & Manchester United Football Clubs, will be leading this training.

Teaching athletes is a fast growing area of yoga. From runners, cyclist and triathletes to professional footballers, yoga is the go-to, must-have training to complement your sport. But sports people get tight, stiff and loose stability. Eventually they arrive in one of your yoga classes as a way to improve their performance, or simply to go on doing the sport they love for longer!  

But teaching athletes is a specialised skill – they can be turned off by much of the traditional language of yoga, and find it boring, or just not engaging. This practical workshop is an intense overview of how best to work with the athletes in our classes.

You will take away for use in your classes how to

  • Best engage with athletes
  • Better understand what flexibility they really need
  • Help athletes who are really stiff and tight
  • Sequencing and terminology to inspire athletes and keep then coming back to your classes
