Understanding an Athlete’s Body and Mind-Set

With Jim Harrington

“Athlete” is a broad term. It applies to anyone from a weekend cyclist to a Premier League footballer.  Many people are dedicated to their field of sport more than they are dedicated to yoga. The yoga will certainly benefit them, but what they really need is a specific yoga for their sport rather than just generic yoga just for the sake of yoga.

For a serious athlete, yoga cannot be separated from their training program and it must compliment rather than contradict the rest of what they do. Learn how to seamlessly adapt yoga practices to suit the real needs of individuals.

In workshop one, we look deeper into fundamentals of joint structure and function, and share ways to bring stability, mobility, strength, and optimum alignment into yoga classes.

This series of workshops is essentially about two things:

  • Bio-mechanically effective practice and teaching methods,
  • Very specific application of the profound body-mind tools that traditional yoga has given us.
Invest in this workshop if you are:
  • an amateur or professional striving to be your best
  • a professional movement therapist or coach
  • a yoga teacher looking to expand on your skills and influence

About the teacher

Jim Harrington

“My philosophy is that anyone who can breathe can do yoga. You don’t have to be super bendy or even very fit to start feeling the benefits of yoga practice. I get a huge amount of satisfaction out of seeing people discover those benefits.”

Jim Harrington has been practising and teaching yoga for more than 20 years. Jim has been called “The teacher’s teacher” because he has mentored more than 150 other teachers through his mentorship and teacher training programmes.

Jim’s approach to yoga is based on decades of experience in traditional yoga as well as modern exercise. The synthesis of the ancient traditions with contemporary thinking and research-based science continues to inform his teaching of yoga, pranayama and meditation.
