Really cold Sunday here in Austin that had many people clamoring for their couches, remotes and a blanket. Our basketball warriors got together for our Basketball Yoga Workshop (http://www NULL.austinyouthbasketball NULL.com/austin-basketball-yoga-workshop/) and worked on clearing their minds, actively stretching their bodies, and restoring range of motion to heal damage done on the court.
14 players, 3 uber-cool Moms, and I went thru a basketball yoga (http://www NULL.austinyouthbasketball NULL.com/basketball-yoga/) workshop developed by Julie Westervelt and me and had a wonderful time. More details to follow, but the response was overwhelmingly positive.
I want to sincerely thank Julie Westervelt for an above and beyond job preparing a basketball specific curriculum to focus on stabilizing ankle, knees and core areas while teaching us poses and sequences. Julie is a renowned yoga professional who specializes in yoga for athletes and young athletes in particular. Many of you know her from Lifetime Fitness or Castle Hill gyms. Our families know how hard I work to bring passionate and expert advisors to our kids and Julie proved no exception after vetting revealed spectacular references form Fitness pros like Jamie Cassaday and Educators like Michelle Corbett of Eanes ISD. After interviewing her a few times we knew she was perfect and were very, very lucky to have her help us now and hopefully moving forward.
Jill Borreson (headed off to Columbia University to play her basketball next year) said it was a “10” and she realized how she could really improve her athletic performance. One mom texted me to give it an “11” and said her Varsity daughter was so relaxed and relieved from muscle soreness that she took a nap and that she never takes naps. I felt remarkably better this morning.
The guys who attended mentioned how challenging it was and remarked how amazing one of the moms in attendance had such flexibility. They realized they had work to do and wanted to know when the next session was.
Stay tuned for announcements for our next workshop. We also do team training should you want to book a workshop for your team or join us at our next event. Call Chris at 512.921.4444 for more details or sign up for our newsletter.
