Yoga has been shown to increase flexibility and balance while decreasing recovery time and injuries in athletes of all ages. In keeping with our drive to create the most complete sports performance program in the Kansas City area, we will be adding 3 sports specific yoga classes into our weekly schedule. All classes will be taught at PSP3, to our family members only, as we feel that yoga will only assist in continuing to benefit our athletes in increasing their performance on the field/court. There is no extra cost to attend these classes as our monthly memberships will cover all fees. Athletes are recommended to attend 1-2 sessions per week (do not count as workout sessions).
Benefits of Yoga:
- Increased flexibility, core strength and balance
- Reduced risk of injury
- Increased breathing techniques that facilitate mental focus, faster reaction time, increased proprioception, improved motor skills
- Quicker recovery
- Steady focus and concentration
Sports Specific Yoga Class Times (60 min long)
Tuesday – 7:45pm
Thursday – 7:45pm
Saturday – 1:30pm (starting Nov 15th)
Each class time has been chosen to create a bridge from workouts to recovery. Athletes are encouraged to come to a regular class and stay for yoga afterwards.
About the instructor, Sue Park
Sue has been an athlete all of her life and been in the yoga and fitness industry for over 25 years. She is passionate about bringing the mind/body connection to every athlete to keep them in the game they love while developing a sense of “self” in the process. She works with athletes individually as well as in groups.
“I cannot begin to state how excited I am that we will be adding yoga into our program. Having worked with Sue before I can tell you that she is one of the premier yoga instructors in the Kansas City area, knowing about proper positions for athletes as well as creating an environment that will only garner great results. Not only do I recommend this for our athletes, you will see myself and coaching staff attending classes as we all believe that yoga will benefit our athletes physically and mentally.”
