Baptiste Yoga For Athletes

DDY Greensboro.  December 7-8, 2018.

Calling all yoga teachers, athletes, coaches and trainers! Join Libby Hoyle Ramsey for"Baptiste Yoga for Athletes - from Preseason to Championship." Specifically designed for athletes from high school to adult of all sports and levels, this is an opportunity to understand and apply Baptiste Yoga in a new and exciting way! 

This training is for any coach, athlete, trainer, or yoga teacher who is interested in learning how to use Baptiste yoga as a tool to improve performance, functional strength, flexibility, and mental toughness, and looking to prevent injury and burnout.

"Baptiste Yoga for Athletes - from Preseason to Championship" will shift your vision to yoga as a tool in an athlete's toolbox for better overall performance and quality of life in his/her sport.

Libby has taught yoga for 10 years and is an E-RYT and a Tier 2 Certified Baptiste Yoga Instructor; she also completed Yoga for Athletes training with Sage Rountree, a published expert on the subject. What makes Libby a unique leader for this program though is that she is an athlete herself and a former Division I college lacrosse player. From playing in a National Championship to running the New York Marathon, Libby has seen and applied the principles she will teach in this program throughout her career.

In this program you will 1) understand the athlete's training cycle and how to create a yoga practice to that training cycle; 2) understand the hurdles and challenges of working with athletes both mentally and physically, and how to overcome them; 3) receive an introduction to basic sports psychology and make connections between it and the messages of Baptiste Yoga, and 4) learn and grow in your own yoga practice by seeing it with new eyes!
