Yoga Classes for the Whole Athlete with Dario Fredrick
Unlock your potential by unlocking your hips and shoulders.
Align your spine to play injury free. Balance your nervous system
to promote optimal recovery.
Specific poses will be practiced to encourage alignment, balance
and openness. While each workshop has a specific focus, they
are appropriate for everyone, athletes and non-athletes
alike. All workshops include restorative poses to enhance recovery
from strenuous exercise and stress. Increased freedom of movement
and restorative practices translate to improved recovery from
daily activities and a greater sense of balance within.
Hips, Knees, Low Back
It’s all in the hips…Ideal for runners and
cyclists, this workshop will address alignment in the hips
and their effects on the knees and lower spine. The repetitive
action of pedaling in cycling creates inherent tightness
in the hips and often translates to knee and low back challenges.
The biomechanics of running and cycling can be improved
with better alignment and range of motion of the hips,
while reducing risk of injury.
Shoulders and Upper Back
Why shoulder the burden? In this workshop, we will focus
on the shoulders and upper back. In swimmers, strength
develops in the upper arms, back and shoulders, but often
at the expense of muscle length, alignment and freedom
Daily activities commonly compromises shoulder alignment
and can exaggerate the natural curves of the upper back
and neck. We will practice poses that address these areas,
working on aligning the spine and freeing the shoulders.
This workshop is also ideal for those who work at a computer.
Optimal Recovery - Restorative Yoga
Restorative poses promote balance in the commonly overworked
systems of the body. The high-energy aspects of daily activities,
whether intense exercise or stressful work, can place significant
stress on both the mind and the body.
Stress literally stimulates the "fight or flight" response
of the nervous system, breaking down muscle and rapidly
utilizing stored energy. Restorative poses reduce and counteract
the stress response, enhancing recovery and peace within.
