Hockey Yoga - The practice
Your strength is greater than the sum of your muscles – that is where yoga comes into the picture.
The very word yoga means union. In terms of hockey-yoga that means working to make the player one balanced unit - body, mind and breath. The more balanced she/he is the more will the most important union improve – the union with the game – flowing as one with the moment.
Therefor I am providing something different than just stretches, breath work and meditation.
Every part of the practice has to aim to balance the whole.
I have spent countless hours studying the sport, watching games, joining ice practices, talking to coaches and players to develop an even better understanding of the needs of a hockey player and how to best communicate the yoga practice.
The method has also naturally evolved thru the years that I’ve worked with hockey players.
