Patricia Bomar & Kalynn Evans, founders of Yoga Athletex, have extensive experience in the sport industry. As former athletes and certified instructors, they are able to provide a program specifically used to support an athletic program. Their application of yoga is very sport specific and includes an athlete’s mindset, which puts them ahead of the curve.
They are able to offer yoga based techniques to increase sport performance, flexibility and balance. In addition, they are very mindful of injury prevention and rehabilitation. Having suffered many injuries due to sport specific training, they bring an extra edge of understanding and experience to the training field.
Yoga is not simply stretching, but activating the muscles properly and mindfully. Our athletes feel better by incorporating the following practices into their training.
Extended Range of Motion and Joint Stabilization
Building Core Strength
Enhancing Focus and Balance
Improving Muscle Function
Sharpening Mental Capacity
Increasing Lung Capacity with Breathing Techniques
Pelvic Function and Hip Mobility
Scapular and Spine Stability
There are so many benefits to incorporating yoga into your training routine. One of the major benefits we like to focus on is imbalance correction. It is common for athletes to dominate one side of their body or get in to the habit of moving a specific way and encouraging poor posture. We focus on correcting imbalances in the spine brought on by sport specific movements. We are here to offer balance to the athlete’s practice, game and every day life. Increasing body awareness and stabilizing proper alignment will increase the foundation for injury prevention. We are incorporating movements that will not only offer strength and conditioning but flexibility and range of motion that can be taken from the mat, to the court, to the athlete’s personal lifestyle.
Aside from physical benefit, our practice also introduces a mental capacity to focus, breathe and perform to your greatest potential. The techniques used by Yoga Athletex will increase self awareness, clarity and avoid frustration and stress. This is effective when translating to the court, allowing the athlete to focus on the task at hand and reading the opponent. Strengthening the mind and body connection is key for increased performance. Neuromuscular function allows better control for ball handling and foot work. Mental clarity, when used with movement is where top athletes are made.
In addition to increased performance on the court, our techniques translate to better rest periods and sleep. Because all yoga practices can be utilized off the court, our athletes will have better grades, behavior and sleep patterns.
