Why Yoga and CrossFit? In one word…Balance.

“The idea developed in April 2010. I was working as a CrossFit coach and surprised at the lack of mobility and stretching offered in most of the workouts I was asked to deliver. I started adding small bits of yoga and mobility at the end of my classes. Feeling that this was an important, and often neglected aspect of many CrossFit classes, I eventually did 100 hours of yoga teacher training in Hatha Yoga and a 100 hour Anusara Yoga Immersion. This was a gift I gave to myself to help myself understand more about my body and how I can give myself the gift of Yoga. Now as a Certified Yoga Teacher, Certified CrossFit Trainer and Affiliate owner, I am thrilled to humbly share the gift of yoga with others, especially CrossFitters who will experience the profound benefits of Yoga, that even go beyond the physical.

Through Yoga, CrossFitters can grow stronger physically and mentally, ultimately leading to better performance results, speedier recovery and safer movements. The benefits of coupling Yoga with CrossFit include:”

  • Flexibility
  • Respiration & Breath Awareness
  • Balance
  • Body Awareness
  • Peace of Mind
  • Agility
  • Injury Prevention
  • Alignment
