FLOATING MEDITATION

Meditation can remove stress and replace with a dose of inner peace. It is a natural remedy we all have at our disposal but sometimes knowing how to start is the hardest part. One of the easiest ways to begin meditating is with mindful body movements and surrounding yourself in nature. That is why we feel that meditating on top of a SUP board is a great way to start. Meditation can help you disconnect from every day stress and mental demands and help you reconnect with yourself.  Some benefits of meditation are; increase in ability to focus, anxiety and depression management, reduction of stress and pain and an improved immune system.

MINDFUL MOVEMENTS FOR ATHLETES

Yoga is for all, athletes included. Yoga works on flexibility, strength, core, agility, endurance, balance, and mindfulness around the sport. It reinforces the focus of enjoying the sport vs just the win of the game. Yoga balances out the muscles, reduces injuries and can help recover from injuries in a safe manner. 

 

Adding Yoga into sport’s training regiment will help with:

  • FLEXIBILITY: Practicing Yoga increases flexibility, and ease of movement, increasing range of motion. Flexibility also reduces injuries. 

  • STRENGTH: Constantly holding up your body weight will build your strength that no amount of weight lifting can provide. 

  • CORE: Almost every pose in Yoga works and builds core strength. A strong core equates to a healthy back and body. 

  • ENDURANCE: Breath awareness is essential to a Yoga practice. When we breathe properly inhalations are lengthened and lung capacity is increased. This, in turn, delivers more oxygen to the body and helps overall performance and efficiency. 

  • BALANCE: Balancing poses improve overall balance and stability throughout the entire body which prevents injuries and falls. 

 

Team packages are available for 4-8 week programs. You can come to one of the many facilities we partner with in Berks County or we can travel to your location of choice.
