  1. Yoga for Athletes Teachers' Lounge: Yoga for Athletic Recovery

    Write Your Review

    $4.99

    Recovery is the key to performance. In this practice, filmed on day 3 of Sage's 2016 Teaching Yoga to Athletes intensive, we enjoy two sequences to relax and restore tired backs and hips. Both appear in EVERYDAY YOGA: Six Moves of the Spine, Prone, One Leg, and Six Moves of the Spine, Supine, One Leg. Along the way, we see how these foster balance in the body, and especially the nervous system. (55 mins.)

  2. Yoga for Athletes Teachers' Lounge: Beyond Sun Salutations

    Write Your Review

    $4.99

    Not every class needs to contain sun salutations! And for athletes, sun salutations can be frustrating and difficult. In this medium-spicy practice from day 2 of Sage's 2016 Teaching Yoga to Athletes intensive, we find ways to work around the typical vinyasa template while building balance in the body. We start by turning inward (learn an easy way to introduce the idea of pratyahara, the fifth limb of yoga), then move through Sage's Leg Swing Flow, Warrior I and Warrior II sequences, and a calming closing sequence on the mat. (59 mins.)

  3. Yoga for Athletes Teachers' Lounge: Standing Practice

    Write Your Review

    $4.99

    In this class, filmed on day 1 of Sage's 2016 Teaching Yoga to Athletes intensive, we enjoy two standing sequences that require no mat. This makes them perfect for a quick yoga break, or for doing in a gym or on a field when there's no mat handy. Warm up with Six Moves of the Spine Standing with Chair, then Sage's Parking Lot Yoga. Complete your home practice as Sage guides you into a relaxing reclining twist. (52 mins.)

    In this online yoga class, filmed on the afternoon of Day 4 of Sage's 2015 Teaching Yoga to Athletes intensive, we enjoy more dynamic standing work to do without a mat needed. Engage your legs, hips, and core in a drinking-bird sequence, then balance inner and outer thighs in Sage's new "Sugarplum Fairy" flow. Put together, these routines make a good short practice; a fine dynamic warmup; or a fun segment for the standing portion of your practice or class. (15 mins.)

  5. Yoga for Athletes Teachers' Lounge: Balance

    Write Your Review

    $10.00

    In this online yoga class, filmed on Day 1 of Sage's 2015 Teaching Yoga to Athletes intensive, we investigate balance - not just balance of the body in space, but balance within the body, top to bottom, front to back, right and left. Move through a slow investigation of your hips and shoulders; build your proprioception by balancing in tree pose both standing and kneeling; and unwind in a mellow sequence based in prone tree pose. Along the way, Sage explains how these poses help athletes find better balance for injury prevention. Have two blocks available. (51 mins.)
