2017 I founded YYFA ® Yoga for Athletes, as a result of my own deep interest in anatomy and sports, and my own background as an elite athlete.
During many years I´ve been teaching yin yoga specifically for police officers and athletes, learning the value of yin yoga adapted to the specific need as an athlete. I have, for sure, not invented a new style of yin yoga, the poses (asanas) are same as in any yin yoga class I teach. What is different though, is the purpose behind the poses and teachings in the practice. Depending on the need of the specific athlete, a yin yoga for athletes class can be targeting and focusing specifically on areas of the body where the athlete(s) need more mobility, such as the hip joint for the climber. A class can also be themed around the athletes mind, and how to use yin yoga as a way of meditation to prepare the athlete for competition.

1. Injury prevention
