Why Yoga for Athletes?
With Grace’s love of anatomy and physiology, her personal experience as an elite gymnast, and her keen passion for all things fitness, Grace fully understands the demands that sport can put on the body, and the needs of athletes in injury recovery, prevention and training. Yoga helped me both physically and mentally when my gymnastic career was at it’s peak. The improvements in my recovery following training and the challenging poses building strength really optimized my performance both in training and competition. Whilst the mental discipline, practices and space for my mind to breathe hugely helped me manage stress, anxiety and competition jitters.
Having experienced the revolutionary impact yoga had for me during a strong athletic career, I am passionate to share this with other athletes to empower them physically and mentally to be the best athlete they can possibly be.
I am fully REPs Level 2, 3 and GP Exercise Referral Qualified and graduated university with a First Class Honours BSc Degree in Sport, Health, Exercise and Nutrition.
